VP6000

The patented VeraPhase® 6000 antenna Series is a full GNSS Constellation antenna that provides the lowest axial ratios (horizon to horizon, over all azimuths) across all GNSS frequencies (<0.5dB at zenith, <2 dB typ. at horizon). It provides exceptional front to back ratios, high efficiency (>70%), a tight PCV (± 1mm), and near constant PCO for all azimuth and elevation angles, over all in-band frequencies. The performance of the VeraPhase® rivals any geodetic / reference antennas including choke ring antennas but is lighter, smaller, more economical, and requires less power. The VP6000 is ideal for GNSS / RTK reference networks, monitoring stations, and other high precision applications.

The VP6000 provides high receive gain over the full GNSS spectrum: Low GNSS band (GPS L2 / L5, Galileo E5a+b / E6, GLONASS G2 / G3 and BeiDou B2 / B3) L-band correction services (1525MHz to 1559MHz) and High GNSS band (GPS L1, GLONASS G1, Galileo E1, and BeiDou B1). It is available with a number of robust pre-filtered LNA variants, each with high IP3 to minimize de-sensing from high-level out-of-band signals, including 700MHz LTE, while still providing a noise figure of less than 2.5dB.

This antenna has been calibrated by both NGS (Relative Calibration) and by GEO++ (Absolute Calibration). The IGS antenna correction model is available at (antenna name is TWIVP6000):
