Multi-Port L Band Antenna Enhances Satellite Communications & GNSS Positioning
30 November 2023
NovoSat from Novocomms is lightweight (5g) but very robust dual-port antenna with high-performance GNSS capabilities plus full L band frequency support.
It is intended for use in high density environments, such as the ‘urban canyons’ of large cities, as well as being able to cope with extremely rugged terrains and adverse weather conditions. Its high gain properties mean that elevated performance quality and positional accuracy are attained. The innovative use of plastics within the manufacturing process, instead of the conventional approach that is reliant on heavier and more expensive ceramics, presents engineers with a lighter and more cost-effective antenna solutions. In tests, calibrated to SGS chambers and when at a frequency of 1.58GHz, the NovoSat achieved a gain (RHCP) figure of 2.97dBic, beam width of 97° and an AR (at phi=0) performance of 130%.
“Our new NovoSat product really does represent the next generation of L Band antenna, out-performing the competition when it comes to frequency, gain, form factor, efficiency and even price. We’re very excited about the doors that this new product can open for electronic manufacturers working the fields of automotive, mobile devices, AUVs, wearables and also those innovating in the IoT space,” states Novocomms’s CEO, Sampson Hu.
