GNSS Antennas

Many applications in positioning, surveying and navigation with global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) have a strong need for reliably available and extremely precise positioning data. In such cases, the quality of the deployed antennas is crucial. The technological challenge is to find a solution that satisfies all requirements in terms of accuracy and reliability but at the same time can be produced at reasonable cost.

Fraunhofer IIS develops antenna concepts that unite highest quality standards with light and robust construction.
