Anechoic Chambers

The Communications Research Group has five anechoic chambers and intends to install a further two at the Buxton site. Within the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering our facilities include custom facilities for antenna characterisation at frequencies above 1 GHz, a fully polarimetric SAR imaging facility, characterisation of both low and high loss materials (for radome and RCS work), and one for very low RCS measurements.
