US Army Opens New Anechoic Chamber for Vehicle Tests; Frank Bohn Comments

us armyThe U.S. Army has launched a new anechoic chamber at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland in a move to expand the space for vehicle tests.

The Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center designed the Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Compatibility and Antenna Test laboratory to accommodate larger and mobile vehicle-mounted projects, the Army said Sept. 11.

CERDEC will use the chamber to perform RF spectrum tests on vehicles.

“This facility allows us to focus on a system’s functionality in specific frequency ranges, then take test results and predict that it either can maintain signal capability or will lose ‘x-amount’ in the field,” said Frank Bohn, electronic protection and interference mitigation branch chief at the CERDEC Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate.

“From there, we can provide suggestions to our customers about how to mitigate signal loss, or find a better solution to maintain capability,” Bohn added.
