Validation & Measurements
Using our state-of-the-art anechoic chambers, Pulsaart by AGC can provide highly accurate measurements, complete raw data and detailed reporting. Based in Belgium, Pulsaart by AGC’s large test chambers can accommodate very large objects and take 2D and 3D measurements from 64MHz to 18GHz. Technical requirements are fulfilled for OTA, in line with today’s fast-paced environment, rapidity of measurement is our strength.
Anechoic chambers are designed to measure and evaluate the performance of an electronic device’s reception of electromagnetic waves while blocking interference from the outside. Our facilities offer cutting edge connectivity development and allow you to design and test a complete connectivity system.
The frequency range of the chambers is from 64MHz to 18GHz and the very large shielded room (>15 meters) allows the measurement of objects of a wide range of sizes and weights (such as cars, satellites, drones, small buses, etc). The chamber mechanisms can support up to 3 tonnes.

Quiet zone diameter: 7.0 m
Our anechoic chamber is designed to perform Far Field measurement of broadcast / telematics antennas and systems using the 2D Dual-Pol Far Field system. The chamber configuration and software suite allow us to predict the antenna behavior on any ground type.
The final result is close to Far Field behaviour.
Using our powerful software suite, we can calculate and predict antenna behaviour on all ground types.
2D far-field measurements
64 MHz - 6 GHz
3D near-field measurements
64 MHz - 18 GHz
The anechoic chamber can also perform measurements using a multi-probe arch or 3D Gantry arm system. These techniques ensure fast, accurate results in all directions around the object.
Mostly used for telematics and high end connectivity objects (drones, satellites, etc), this method provides a 3D measurement sphere around the object and for the complete object.
Based on our strong expertise of classical antenna measurement, Pulsaart by AGC is today offering a new service to the market: OTA (Over The Air) : a complete, rapid and standardized validation methodology in a controlled environment replacing conventional drive tests.
The main advantage is that all parameters are controlled and artificially reproduced according to a series of standardized scenarios (urban environment, rural environment, different region specific frequencies and power, etc.).
The technology is currently under development.
