The EXA GCA01 is a one-stage, compact GNSS active patch antenna solution that works with GNSS cards and links to GPS, Galileo, BeiDou and GLONASS constellations. The antenna is suitable for space-grade GNSS devices to achieve good sensitivity across all bands in a small form factor.

The active patch antenna, by means of a double resonance design, has a wide-band operation over GPS/GLONASS/Galielo/BeiDou systems from 1561MHz to 1606MHz. It includes a one-stage LNA and front-end SAW filter to reduce out of band noise.

Main features:

  • Flight heritage since 2018
  • Active antenna, LNA integrated
  • SAW filter integrated
  • Custom choice of connectors
  • Designed for LEO missions and requirements
  • Manufactured according to NASA and ESA space standards and materials
  • Functional, performance, thermal bake out and vibration tests provided w/documentation
  • Compatible and compliant with standard deployers and CubeSat Standard
