Trimble AV17 UAV Helix GNSS Antenna

Trimble AV17 UAV/Helix GNSS Antenna

Manufacturer: | Category:

The Trimble AV17 GNSS antenna is a helix based triple-frequency, L-band antenna that is ideal for UAV applications due to its lightweight design, low power consumption and small form factor.



The Trimble AV17 UAV/helix GNSS antenna supports GPS L1/L2/L5, GLONASS L1/L3, Galileo E1/E5 and BeiDou B1/B2/B2a as well as Trimble RTX and OmniSTAR correction services via L-Band.

The Trimble AV17 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.
