Test Cap for X-Band Antennas


Anywaves’ Test Cap (or Test Hat) for X-Band Antennas is the essential tool for testing our X-Band Antennas at the satellite level. Its single-part design makes it easy to use and effective while maintaining a very low impact on the antenna.

Anywaves’ Test Cap for X-Band Antennas enables reproducible measurements of the antenna and transceiver on the platform. You will perform better end to end tests, securing your performance and saving time and money avoiding complex tests in anechoic chambers.

This Ground Segment Equipment consists of a cylindrical aluminium cavity terminated by a RF probe. Its single part design eliminates the need for a mounting bracket. It easily screws directly on top of the antenna. The test cap is compatible with thermal vacuum environments with low outgassing properties. The plug-and-play for an end to end RF (Radio Frequency) system measurements and low radio frequency leakage ensures safe and efficient testing. With highly reproductible measurement, you will demonstrate your complete radio frequency chain performance for better reliability of your satellite and increase your customer satisfaction!
