The purpose of this document is to generate a reliable primary beam model for AARTFAAC-6. This is necessary to compensate for the primary beam response in all-sky images, whose effect is to attenuate sources away from the pointing center. The AARTFAAC system piggybacks on the LOFAR antennae in 12 stations including the 6 superterp stations and the first ring of station surrounding it.
