Based on the company’s new TA-5 full-spectrum GNSS antenna element, the CR-G5 geodetic antenna offers excellent vertical phase center stability over the GNSS frequency band superior performance in tracking low elevation satellite signals, according to the company.

The TA-5 technology utilizes an array of vertical convex dipoles to provide “full wave” tracking for all existing and future GNSS signals. A “white paper” on the TA-5 can be found on-line in Inside GNSS’s eLibrary here. The antenna element possesses a relative bandwidth that more than covers the entire GNSS band from 1160 up to 1615 MHz.

The CR-G5 is designed for the long-term installations required for reference network and monitoring applications. The unit is shock tested to withstand repeated one-meter drops onto concrete, and meets environmental ratings for IPX7 (waterproof) and IP6X (dustproof), Topcon sources say.
