Antenna Measurement System Software & Options


Diamond Engineering Logo DAMS Logo

The Desktop Antenna Measurement System also known as D.A.M.S, has been designed to provide a cost effective method of designing and testing small to medium sized antennas. The System uses state of the art software to fully interact with your Network Analyzer to provide seamless automatic measurements with little user intervention required.



 Ideal for Wireless RF & Microwave Antenna Design & Development  


Diamond Engineering DAMs Antenna Measurement System Software



DAMS Software


Advanced Features


Spherical Plots & Iso-Spheres


Version 4 now offers spherical plots with iso-spheres and you can project the response on to a sphere of radius equal to the platform separation and grid equal to the measurement


Comes Standard

 with the ALL DAMs Systems

Version 4.5
Is Available Now!
This software contains upgraded AZ/EL 3D plots along with some minor updates.
Please contact us to access this download.


Plot Gallery






Each sphere represents an Isotropic gain in dBi. The antenna plot is derived from S21

If you look down at the main lobe and use the rendered Iso-Sphere you can easily visualize the associated beam widths by specifying the Iso-Sphere grid



A play mode is also available to play the profile through the frequency range. This yields some amazing movies.


The DAMS 6000 is required for this software.


 DAMs Software


Comes Standard

 with the ALL DAMs Systems



Designed for quick learning and maximum productivity the D.A.M.S. Software has been designed with many time saving features including instant help which provides on the spot help for any function.

An all-on-one Page contains everything you need to completely measure an antenna including A Polar Plot, Resetting Amplitude Plot, and a Non-Resetting history plot.

Use the export function to put all of your data into a file to be used with Math-CAD or imported into Excel.

Please See our Advanced Processing Add-on for advanced features such as Group Delay functions and 3D plots with multiple data registers.
