GPS & GNSS Antennas
All NovAtel antennas (except the GNSS 750 reference station antenna*) meet the European Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS). All antennas meet the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH) Directives. FAA Airworthiness Certification is available on avionic models.
*The GNSS-750 antenna is not within the scope of the RoHS directive. It is intended to be used as a Reference Station antenna at a fixed location over a long period of time and as such it qualifies to use the “Large-Scale Fixed Installation” RoHS scope exemption.
What is a GNSS or GPS Antenna and how does it work?
A GNSS or GPS antenna is a device designed to receive and amplify the radio signals transmitted on specific frequencies by GNSS satellites and convert them to an electronic signal for use by a GNSS or GPS receiver. The output of the GNSS or GPS antenna is fed into a GNSS or GPS receiver that can compute the position.
