ESA: Galileo GPS Antennas tests under way

Antennas for the Galileo in-orbit verification engineering model satellite under test in the anechoic chamber at EADS Astrium, Portsmouth, UK.
The chamber is lined with materials that absorb the radiation emitted by the antennas, simulating space conditions. The antennas are mounted on a structure that holds them in the same positions as they will occupy when mounted on the satellite.
