A tough, lightweight circularly polarized antenna for vehicular applications needing high performance GNSS reception is the Antcom Mini Multi-Frequency GNSS Reception. The antenna has connection points on the top and bottom, making it perfect for mounting on both new and old platforms. It has a similar form factor to the well-known "Fixed Reception Pattern Antenna" (FRPA3) footprint but is housed in a more compact, lighter, and smaller shell.
There are passive and active (amplified) versions of the 3G Mini GNSS antenna. The active circuitry is made to be highly effective while using little power. The dual-band filtering of the amplifier, which is perfect for compact platforms, reduces interference signals from surrounding antennas. Installations where the antenna is near the receiver are best suited for the passive design. The antenna won't need to be powered in this setup.
Low power consumption with only 25 mA current draw and a wide input voltage compatibility range
Only 5.4 oz (153 g) yet covers multi-frequency GNSS
Coverage includes GPS M-Code & P(Y) signals and Galileo with PRS for high accuracy positioning, navigation and timing
Designed for installation via top mount or bottom mount
Single connector for antenna output and DC power input
