Calian® Introduces a Line of Surface-mount Full-band and Triple-band VeroStar™ GNSS Antennas

(Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, September 17, 2020) Calian® Wireless Inc. is excited to announce the addition of four new game-changing surface mount VeroStar™ products to its industry-leading line of antennas. The compact and lightweight surface mount VeroStar™ models offer key features not available on other antennas.

The lightweight (340 g) and compact wide-band spherical antenna element enables the VeroStar™ to deliver a ±2 mm phase centre variation (PCV), making it ideal for high-precision applications, such as precision agriculture, autonomous vehicle navigation (land, sea, and air), and maritime positioning.

The full and triple-band surface-mount VeroStar™ antennas are designed and crafted for high-accuracy positioning. With an exceptionally low roll-off from zenith to the horizon, VeroStar™ antennas provide the best-in-class tracking of GNSS and L-band correction signals at low elevation angles. Also, the optimized axial ratio at all elevation angles results in excellent multipath rejection, thus enabling accurate and precise code and phase tracking. Additionally, VeroStar™ antennas feature a robust pre-filter and high-IP3 LNA architecture, minimizing de-sensing from high-level out-of-band signals, including 700 MHz LTE, while still providing a noise figure of only 1.8 dB.

The VSS6037 supports the full GNSS spectrum, while the VSS6337 supports the GPS/QZSS-L1/L2/L5, GLONASS-G1/G2/G3, Galileo-E1/E5a/E5b, BeiDou-B1/B2/B2a, and NavIC-L5 signals and frequency bands. The VSS6037L and the VSS6337L also include support for L-band correction services.

The unique features of the VeroStar™ antennas guarantee it can deliver high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), high accuracy, and high precision in the most challenging environments.
