The highest operation frequency and the measurement accuracy of compact antenna test ranges (CATRs) are limited by the manufacturing technology of the range collimating element. This paper reviews antenna pattern correction techniques, which can be used to improve the measurement accuracy of a CATR. In addition three lately developed techniques, which are suitable especially at high frequencies and in hologram based CATRs are presented. The latter techniques have been demonstrated in a hologram based CATR at 310 GHz.
