This paper presents a contactless measurement method for the characterization of highly integrated antennas. It is based on the backscattering method but omits the need to pre-determine the radar-cross-section of the antenna. The input reflection coefficient can even be obtained with an uncalibrated measurement system. Here, results for an X-band antenna are presented and compared with HFSS simulation results.
