This paper describes the applications of a large compact range collimator used for Radar Cross-Section measurements. Because the collimator surface is analytically describable, the field distribution in the test zone can be readily predicted for various feed radiation patterns and locations. Several unique applications of the collimating system are presented that benefit from these features.
