I've never worked with equipment like that before

As radio engineers, we spend a lot of time building radio electronics but the one bit we've been unable to see is what actually happens when those radio waves leave the device this facility enables us to see those signals in near real-time and get really good understanding of what's actually happening to those radio waves we spend so much of our effort creating.

The SG 64 – named after its ring of 64 test antennas that looks like the portal from a sci-fi movie – is within a fully anechoic 6m-cube test chamber. It can perform full three-dimensional measurements and visualisations of the performance of both the radio and antennas of devices over the air – enabling body-worn products and their antennas to be accurately measured in situ. Watch Cambridge Consultants testimony explaining how they use this system.
