412TW Benefield Anechoic Facility (BAF)
412 TW Benefield Anechoic Facility (BAF) at the Air Force Test Center, Edwards AFB, CA. The BAF provides a robust RF T&E infrastructure to ensure system survivability
and mission effectiveness for the DoD, industry and allies. The largest anechoic test facility (264ft L x 250ft W x 70ft H) provides a secure “virtual open-air RF range
within four walls” — a valuable tool providing test engineering applied to the development and the T&E of RF systems. We conduct Antenna Pattern, EW/IO, Survivability,
Electromagnetic Interoperability and Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) tests. The uniquely large BAF offers a highly flexible and scalable indoor antenna range
and test capability for installed and uninstalled antenna systems across a wide spectrum. The well-equipped facility, with its positioners, turntable, hoist and integrated
measurement equipment, offers a unique and extremely wide and flexible test capability. It has proven beneficial for the test of antennas as individual antennas to
antenna systems integrated on large aircraft across a wide frequency spectrum and geometries. The indoor facility also provides a secure facility for special programs or
other activities affected by regulatory restrictions (such as GPS outdoor testing). Visit us at our Booth #31. (http://www.edwards.af.mil/Units/772nd-Test-Squadron/)
