New High Vibration, Dual-Frequency Pinwheel® Antenna Provides Placement Flexibility and Optimal Positioning Performance

(Calgary, Alberta - September 2, 2014) NovAtel® Inc. today introduced the GPS-702-GG-HV to its line of high performance Pinwheel antennas. Tracking L1/L2 GPS and L1/L2 GLONASS frequencies, customers can use the same antenna for GPS-only or dual constellation applications, reducing equipment costs and need for future redesign. With the same form-factor and choke ring performance as our other Pinwheel antennas, the GPS-702-GG-HV has been enhanced even further to provide the robustness needed for use under high vibration conditions.

The phase center of this antenna remains constant as the azimuth and elevation angle of the satellites change. Signal reception is unaffected by the rotation of the antenna or satellite elevation, so placement and installation of the antenna can be completed with ease. With the phase center in the same location for both the L1 and L2 signals and with minimal phase center variation between antennas, this antenna is ideal for baselines of any length.

Enclosed in a durable, waterproof housing, the GPS-702-GG-HV comes in three colors: NovAtel standard grey, as well as desert tan and olive drab for military customers. The antenna is available for order beginning September 12, 2014.
