AsiaSat 9 Update - Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR)

What is Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR)?

CATR is an antenna specific test facility widely used on spacecrafts to verify all antenna systems performance. The spacecraft is placed on the positioner which allows the measurement systems within the CATR facility to provide a highly accurate antenna performance. The data collected will be used to compare to specifications for compliance and additional performance margins.
