The NewSpace Systems (NSS) NANT-PTCL1 GPS Antenna is an active GPS patch antenna that can be used with the company's GPS receivers. If required by the client, the NSS team can also supply a GPS receiver along with the antenna. The GPS circuitry at the heart of the receiver can also be deployed as a single mezzanine board to accompany the NSS CubeSat ACS board or as a stand alone boxed or unboxed version for CubeSats.

The COTS chipset utilised in the NSS GPS Receivers has been flying for more than a decade. To date, more than 30 units of the GPS Receivers have been delivered globally.

All FM parts undergo random vibration (10 rms) as well as thermal cycling (four cycle ambiant pressure) to five degrees beyond operational thermal specifications. NSS can perform additional environmental testing if required by a client.
