Overview

The TW1889XF employs Calian’s patented Accutenna® technology, providing dual band GPS L1/L2, GLONASS G1/G2/G3, Galileo E1/E5b, and BeiDou B1/B2b coverage and is especially designed for precision dual frequency positioning where light weight is important.

The TW1889XF features a precision-tuned, circular dual-feed, stacked patch element. The signals from the two orthogonal feeds are combined in a hybrid combiner, amplified in a wide-band LNA, band-split for narrow XF filtering in each band, and further amplified prior to recombination at the output.

The radio frequency spectrum has become more congested as new LTE bands are activated and their signals or harmonic frequencies [e.g. 800MHz x 2 = 1600MHz (GLONASS-G1)] can affect GNSS antennas and receivers. In North America, planned Ligado signals at 1525 – 1536 MHz can especially impact GNSS antennas. New LTE signals in Europe [Band 32 (1452 – 1496 MHz)] and Japan [Bands 11 and 21 (1476 – 1511 MHz)] have also been observed to interfere with GNSS signals. In addition, Inmarsat satellite communication (uplink: 1626.5 – 1660.5 MHz) can also affect GNSS signals. Calian’s XF antennas have been designed to mitigate out-of-band signals and prevent GNSS antenna saturation. Calian’s custom XF filtering mitigates all existing signals and new Ligado and LTE signals, enabling the antennas and attached GNSS receivers to perform optimally.

The TW1889XF offers excellent axial ratio and a tightly grouped phase centre variation.
