Airbus Defence and Space


Compact Range Reflector

The applied technology has been developed for the demanding requirements of the defence and space industry and has been verified in numerous compact range projects.

The structural  design and manufacturing technology of Airbus Defence and Space’s Compact Range Reflectors enable by utilizing a high precision machining process and state-of-the-art alignment technologies surface accuracies of typically 25µm in the operational position and guarantees precise RF-measurements up to 500 GHz.

Further the structural design ensures long term stability also of the very large reflector surfaces resulting in a high RF-measurement repeatability at minor maintenance and calibration efforts.
