GPS/GNSS Antennas

GPS Source antennas are specifically designed and manufactured for the GNSS frequencies (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, and Compass). In addition to standard L1 active (receive) and passive (broadcast) antenna’s, GPS Source also supplies L1/L2 antennas for most applications, available in the UK from APC Time.

GNSS Active Antenna for Network Synchronisation and Timing – L1G1A-STD

The dominant theme for the wireless evolution is network densification.  This GNSS antenna supports the evolution. Given that signals received from GNSS satellites are weak and arriving from any direction, it is clear that choosing the correct antenna for telecom is important. The GNSS active antenna amplifies the received signal to compensate for potential losses in long coaxial cables.  Power is delivered from the front end through the coaxial cable itself. Characterised by low noise and high gain to provide optimum signal quality, the L1G1A-STD has been tuned for performance and function.
