RFCM Techniques Chamber Facility

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Provides the capability to develop radio-frequency countermeasure (RFCM) techniques in a controlled environment from 2.0 to 40.0 GHz. The configuration of the chamber allows for direct illumination of a target system from an electronic countermeasure (ECM) system.DESCRIPTION: The facility is a shielded anechoic chamber that is 39 ft 3-1/2 in. long x 17 ft 1 in. wide x 16 ft 1-3/8 in. high. This chamber is equipped with a moveable end wall at the east end of the chamber and a single quiet zone located adjacent to the fixed end wall at the west end of the chamber. The quiet zone is 4 ft long x 4 ft wide x 4 ft high. The center of the quiet zone is located on the chamber boresight axis and 2 ft from the absorber tips on the fixed end wall. Target systems are positioned by attaching them to an azimuth-over-elevation mount located in the main control room of the chamber. The system antennas extend through an opening in the wall centered in the quiet zone of the chamber. For servicing, the mount is located on a track that allows it to be rolled back into the control room. The ECM systems are located on the other end of the chamber behind a moveable absorber wall. The ECM antennas are mounted to or placed in front of the opposite wall.INSTRUMENTATION: This facility has no dedicated instrumentation; users supply both the target and ECM systems.
