Trimble- AV16 UAV Helix GNSS Antenna

Trimble AV16 UAV/Helix GNSS Antenna

Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The Trimble AV16 GNSS antenna is a helix based dual-frequency, L-band antenna that is ideal for UAV applications due to its low power consumption and the design having a small form factor and being lightweight.



The Trimble AV16 UAV/helix GNSS antenna supports GPS L1/L2, GLONASS L1/L2, Galileo E1, BeiDou B1 and as well as OmniSTAR and Trimble RTX correction services via L-Band.

The Trimble AV16 features a helix element that is precision tuned, delivers excellent axial ratio and does not need a ground plane to perform optimally. This antenna also uses an integrated low-loss pre-filter to increase its immunity to high amplitude interference signals from cellular signals, including LTE. The antenna has an O-ring to comply with IP67 standards, as well as an integrated SMA connector to make screw-on mounting easy.
