The MAVEN high-gain antenna measures 6.5 feet (79 inches) in diameter by 3.3 feet (40 inches) tall. The reflector is made of Kevlar honeycomb core sandwiched between two composite face sheets. It is currently undergoing performance, pattern, and acoustic testing at Lockheed Martin's facility in Newtown, Pa.
