The article presents the results of the development and optimization of the installation device for measuring the electrical characteristics of the integrated elements of the feedthrough phased antenna arrays. The design of the installation device providing simplicity in operation at acceptable validity and repeatability of results of measurements is offered. Results of optimization of the sizes of the matching transitions of the installation device are given and requirements to characteristics of contact surfaces of a product are proved. On the basis of the proposed design developed devices designed for use in laboratory research and mass production. The results of the device implementation in the Ku-band are presented
