Antenna Hood

Hoods from GPS Source available from APC Time, are similar to mini anechoic chambers. They fully contain the GNSS signal and allow safe testing of GPS devices to occur under the hood. When you need a test chamber (anechoic) that fully contains the GNSS signal, GPS Source repeater hoods are an optimal, low-cost solution.

GPS 5″ Antenna Hood – GPSRHL15

Complete end-to-end testing of GPS systems should include the application’s receiving antenna. At a fraction of the cost of a full-blown screen room or anechoic chamber, the GPS Source Antenna Hood (GPSRH) will supply your application’s receive antenna with the necessary GPS signals.

Operating in conjunction with an outdoor active antenna and a coaxial cable, the GPS Source Antenna Hood will convey a signal to the application under test.

The standard hat creates an enclosed environment, eliminating the need for GPS repeaters.  The basic GPSRH15 is available online.  It comes with a 5 inch internal diameter and is lined with standard Eccosorb SF.
