 Antennas are wave mode changers, that are classically described by a set of antenna parameters such as input impedance, gain, directivity, antenna factor and radiation diagram. Due to progressing complexity and integration of transmission systems, the exact knowledge of these parameters is getting more and more important. For the measurement of quantities conforming to standards, different measurement setups in absorber chambers and on open-area test sites exist. With progressing computational capabilities, computationally intensive methods based on near-field-tofar-field transformation gain importance. Flying measurement platforms based on autarkic multicopters are used for the characterization of large stationary antenna systems. The talk shows some new developments.
