Tapered Anechoic Chamber

Tapered Chamber

It’s nearly impossible to perform VHF/UHF measurements in a rectangular chamber.  In the 1960’s Emerson determined that tapering one end of an Anechoic Chamber would cause the chamber to act like an indoor ground reflection range.

Tapered Chambers work very well at the lower frequencies.  Their design forms a uniform illumination across the test region.  The tapered end of the chamber forces the wall images close together forming a source antenna array.  Tapered Chambers are usually a less expensive option compared to rectangular antenna measurement chambers or compact ranges.
