The Submarine Sensor Test Platform (SSTP) facility is an RCS/antenna measurement platform consisting of a shore site and an open ocean site 900 feet offshore. Large mast structures are mounted on the platform while on shore. The SSTP is then moved by a winch to an offshore docking station for testing. Antennas on the platform can be connected to onboard measuring devices for collecting antenna pattern or impedance data.
