Q: What are the key criteria in selecting a GNSS antenna for a particular application?
A: Performance, size and cost. Size and cost are easy for the integrator to assess; determining the necessary antenna performance to achieve the desired system-level performance is difficult to evaluate. Obtaining the complete GNSS solution from a single source is ideal; vendors that sell both antennas and receivers will generally understand the minimum system-level performance their solutions can provide for a given application and deliver the optimized solution to meet all three criteria.
A: Antenna selection for GNSS applications must consider performance, size and cost. Successful GNSS deployments start with
