NSI Far-Field Systems
Nearfield Systems Inc. (NSI) offers cost-effective, flexible, and high performance automated far-field antenna measurement systems. These systems can be purchased as upgrades to current far-field or near-field measurement systems, or as new fully integrated turn-key facilities.
NSI’s far-field systems build on the company’s 20 years of experience in supplying high performance automated antenna measurement systems. Major elements provided by NSI include :

NSI Far-Field Measurement Systems
NSI’s Far-field Antenna Measurement Systems are designed for new installations and/or major upgrades. The NSI-800F-10 is an economical single-axis easy-to-use far-field range with one azimuth stage for taking principal plane measurements. The NSI-800F-20 is a multi-axis far-field range with an azimuth over elevation stage for three dimensional antenna measurements. The systems are configured to test in indoor direct illumination anechoic chambers, compact ranges, outdoor ground reflection ranges, and other types of ranges.
NSI far-field antenna measurement systems include the following elements :
- NSI 2000 Far-field Antenna Measurement and Analysis Software
- Measurement Workstation
- Antenna Range and Beam controller units
- 20 GHz RF cables
- 1 to 3 positioner axes depending on system configuration
- Installation and Training (Priced separately)

NSI Far-Field Measurement Systems Upgrade Path
NSI’s far-field modular approach allows for incremental upgrades as requirements, funding, and schedules permit. This diagram provides upgrade paths for the NSI-800F-10 single axis system to a 3D antenna test system. The diagram also shows how the NSI-800F-10 can be transformed through incremental upgrades, into some our most popular Spherical Near-field Scanners.
