What this study adds:
Herein, a novel proof-of-concept experimental setup proposed by Dr. Salazar at the Radar Innovations Laboratory was constructed and optimized to assess the effects of temperature variations on phased array radar calibration. The system is fully automated and programmable with a graphical user interface and allows surface, thermal, and radio frequency characterization. The controllable hardware consists of an environmental chamber and a robot arm mounted with an infrared camera, high definition camera, laser, and radio frequency scanner that perform automated analysis of a chosen antenna under test. This paper, in addition to describing the experimental setup in detail, catalogues the analysis and amelioration of system parameters.
