The 320 GHz RF Test Horn (indicated with arrow) on the Planck Radio Frequency Qualification Model (RFQM) Focal Plane Unit (FPU).
The testing of the RFQM FPU was performed at the Thales Alenia Space Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR) and has confirmed the testing method can and will also be used for the RF verification of the flight model in early 2008.
