NAVAIR at Point Mugu, California operates the 22,500 ft2 (2090 m2) Bistatic Anechoic Chamber not only for bistatic RCS tests and measurements, but also for a variety of other specialized measurements. It is large enough for farfield measurements and supports testing from 100 MHz to 100 GHz. As a member of the design team, The Howland Company wrote the specification for the compact range reflector, designed the anechoic material layout, developed a conceptual design for target handling systems and procedures, and wrote the construction specs related to shielding and anechoic construction and testing.
