Summary

The microPATCH-L1 is miniature version of the Space-Friendly™ GPS-L1 CubeSat Active Antenna module specially designed to provide strong signal for GPS satellites reception in space. Integrated Low Noise Amplifier as well as SAW filter are matched together with 25×25 mm Patch antenna and optimized ground plane. Outer dimensions of 82×36 mm represent a great compromise of the size and minimum viable groundplane area. The module shall be embedded into the satellite body close to conductive parts such as metallic sidewalls or PCB groundplanes, to extend the existing antenna groundplane. Easy-to-use MCX or SMA signal and power interface provides compact solution for all kind of projects where strong GPS signal reception with enough margins is required. Product is manufactured in two grades to satisfy both Engineering and Flight requirements. Modules (/EM, /FM) are electrically identical, however their chemical and mechanical properties allows it to be used in laboratory or space, respectively. The fully functional Engineering Model is finished by red coating with Remove Before Flight labelling.
