Maxtena to release an upgraded dual L1 GPS/GLONASS antenna

M1516HCT-P-SMA AntennaMaxtena will begin shipping in the end of Q4 of this year a new and improved dual L1 GPS/GLONASS passive antenna. The M1516HCT-P-SMA antenna will replace Maxtena's existing M1516HCT-SMA antenna. The M1516HCT-P-SMA is a dual band, high performance antenna designed for both GPS and GLONASS, and built on proprietary HeliCore® technology. This technology provides exceptional pattern control, polarization purity and high efficiency in a very compact form factor. The M1516HCT-P-SMA is a screw-on design, featuring an integrated SMA connector. The antenna has been mechanically upgraded. The first of the new upgrades is the black radome. The new radome is a straight design, which is a move away from the previous two tier radome. The new antenna is rated IP-67 when mounted for  additional protection.

Maxtena develops combo helical/UHF antenna for simultaneous satellite access

Maxtena has developed a high performance multi-band antenna that combines proprietary Helicore® technology with a monopole-type UHF antenna in a single form factor. The DualMax-Helical/UHF combines two antennas with a custom cable and connector. The helical element can be tuned for the GPS/GLONASS bands, Iridium network or Globalstar network. The helical element is integrated with a monopole-type UHF antenna providing a frequency range between 300 MHz and 800 Mhz. The multi-band antenna combo is an ideal solution for applications requiring simultaneous access to different satellite systems for emergency communication; two examples are Iridium and COSPAS-SARSAT or Globalstar and COSPAS-SARSAT.
