Abstract

Present Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) chambers present to the receiver reflected as well as direct electromagnetic (EM) radiation from the source transmitter being examined because of the reflections off the walls of the chamber. A properly designed parabolic chamber will reflect source EM emanations such that it would bypass the receiver and only the direct radiation from the source will be gathered and/or received by the pick up receiver.
