A method of functional enhancements of the collimator antenna measurements is proposed. The structure of the automated complex collimator antenna measurement technique is described; the technique allows to improve the estimation accuracy of the maximum level of the side lobes in sections different from the main one. A method of measuring of 3D directional pattern is developed. The structure of automated complex of collimator antenna measurement technique is offered. It has been found out that the developed method allows to reduce the complexity and laboriousness of measurements significantly, to eliminate the human factor and to improve the estimation accuracy of the maximum level of the side lobes.
