Simulator / RF Signal Distribution
AMPLIFIERS: When you need to increase the power of your GNSS signal, GPS Source hasstandard 30dB and 40dB amplifiers and LNA’s in a wide range of housing formats to fit yourspecific application. We also can build amplifiers with a specific amplification or variableamplification.SMART AMPLIFIERS: GPS Source is the only manufacturer of next generation smart amplifiersthat provide a consistant/controlled power output that can be selected on a digital display. Oursmart amplifiers will also monitor for oscillation and mitigate it making them the safest GPS amplifiers available.
Splitters: When you need the GNSS signal routed to multiple destinations, GPS Source hasthe most extensive line of GPS splitters in a wide array of output and housing form factors. We provide everything from passive splitters to units that can have custom gain on each output.
Ruggedized Splitters: GPS Source can also provide mil-qualifying services for any of our products.Smart Splitters: Capable of detecting failed power sources and switch to alternative powersources.
GNSS Rack Mounts are available in 8, 16, and 32 output rack mount splitters with short leadtimes. If you need features that are not in this catalog, please call for availability and pricing.
A GPS repeater is a device that relays GPS signals to any indoor location. The repeaterreceives satellite signals via an antenna located outside the building and conveys the signalindoors.GPS Source offers standard GPS Repeater Assemblies that are designed to work right off theshelf. For larger or more complex projects, we can help you design a custom system that issafe and dependable.When you need to bring the GNSS signal indoors wirelessly, GPS Source designs andmanufactures robust repeater assemblies that include the repeater and mounting bracket.Repeaters can be purchased to pass L1, L1/L2, L5, GLONASS, Galileo, and Omnistar.Repeaters are only available to approved/licensed entities.1. Federal Government or agencies operating under the direction of the Federal Government2. Parties that have received an STA or Experimental License under part 5 of the FCC rules3. Parties operating in an anechoic chamber4. International Customers (outside the U.S.)
GPS Source Hangar kits are complete systems that are shipped ready to installl for immediateuse.They allow uninterrupted GPS coverage within a hangar, sunshade, motor pool garage, etc.Efficiencies are immediately recognized, as accessibility to work on the GPS navigationbecomes more convenient. Garage doors can remain shut (lowering utility costs) as they are nolonger required to be open for a GPS signal to be received inside.
Hoods from GPS Source are similar to mini anechoic chambers. They fully contain the GNSSsignal and allow safe testing of GPS devices to occur under the hood. When you need a testchamber (anechoic) that fully contains the GNSS signal, GPS Source repeater hoods are anoptimal, low cost solution.NO FCC LICENSING REQUIRED. Device is designed to contain GPS Signal within the hoodenclosure.
An Attenuator is a device that reduces the amplitude or power of a signal without appreciablydistorting its waveform. It is a passive device that could be considered the opposite of anamplifier. While an amplifier provides gain, an attenuator provides loss. Fixed attenuatorsdissipate power and improve impedance matching. In measuring signals, attenuators are usedto lower the amplitude of the signal by a specified amount. A GPS attenuator on a coaxial cablecan be used to reduce the GPS signal level before it is used to test equipment. All GPS Source attenuators are capable of passing DC bias voltage through the device or blocking the DC path,without affecting the GPS signal.
A Combiner is a device that will take the input signal from two GPS antennas and combine the signal to one receiving GPS unit. GPS Source combiners will pass DC bias voltage through thedevice to power both antennas.
A Filter is a device designed to filter out unwanted signals. It can be designed to pass only the L1 GPS Frequency or just the L5 GPS Frequency. A good filter features high out of bandrejection, including excellent side band rejection.The standard configuration for non-powered Attenuators/Combiners/Filters is to pass DC onthe input(s) and the output(s).
The standard configuration for powered Attenuators/Combiners/Filters is to pass DC on the input(s) and block DC on the output(s). Special configurations are available and must be specified.
Accessories is including Antennas and many accessories to support GPS, GNSS and PNT système Network.
A GPS or any GNSS device relies on the radio signals sent by the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) network situated in Earth’s orbit. Unfortunately, the signals from this satellite sytem are very weak and the accuracy of GPS depends on the GPS signal strength. A GPSantenna helps focus and move the GPS signal to a GPS unit, whether it is a standalone unitor an embedded unit. Antennas are used in situations where the GPS unit itself is somehowremoved from a line of sight to the sky, as in a building or an armored vehicle.GPS Source antennas are specifically designed and manufactured for the GNSS frequencies(GPS, L5, GLONASS, Galileo, and Omnistar). In addition to standard L1 active (receive) andpassive (broadcast) antenna’s, GPS Source also supplies L1/L2 antennas for most applications.We also manufacture our own RA1 and RA2 antennas for military applications.
