Waterproof to 20 meters, ideal for tactical
San Diego, California, May 1, 2017 - Southwest
Antennas, an industry leader in innovative rugged RF / microwave antennas and accessory
products, has released a new GPS passive L1 antenna with integrated coaxial RF gooseneck,
adding to their existing line of passive and active GPS antenna products for the
military, law enforcement, and commercial markets.
The integrated gooseneck allows the GPS antenna
to be utilized on tactical radio systems where multiple antenna RF connectors and
control knobs can located in a small space, giving users the ability to position
the GPS antenna up and away from areas of mechanical interference. The gooseneck
also allows the GPS antenna to be easily repositioned vertically to face the GPS
satellite constellation if the attached radio is placed on its side, set into a
vehicle dock, or other non-vertical operating positing. This ensures accurate GPS
position and timing for mission critical applications.
Southwest Antennas Part # 1027-010 features an operator-friendly
compact size and light weight achieved with a quadrifilar helical design, in addition
to providing an axial ratio of 1.0 dB, offering excellent performance in noisy
RF environments. The entire product is environmentally sealed and waterproof to
a depth of 20 meters / 65.6 t, allowing the antenna to be used in all weather
conditions and maritime operations.
Additionally this product can also be configured with an Active L1 GPS Antenna
(+11 dB Gain) and different RF connectors upon request.
