The current work presents the procedure of designing and carrying out measurements of radiation emission from an air-traffic surveillance radar. The system requirements are first given, and then the equipment used is described. The steps to determine the operating characteristics of the radar are specified in detail. The necessary methods for manual power measurements and calculations are next explained. Since the final measurement system was fully automated, its main features (topology, protocol of operation) are also given. Finally, some measurement results taken during the initial phase of system operation are presented and discussed.
