Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) introduced the new CR-G5, a high performance choke ring antenna based on the company’s innovative TA-5 full spectrum GNSS antenna element. The new TA-5 technology utilizes an array of vertical convex dipoles to provide “full wave” tracking for all existing and future GNSS signals.

This premium geodetic antenna has excellent vertical phase center stability over the entire GNSS frequency band, providing superior performance in tracking low elevation satellite signals, according to company sources. It is environmentally designed for the long-term installations required for reference network and monitoring applications. It is shock tested to withstand repeated 1m drops onto concrete, and is IPX7 waterproof and IP6X dustproof rated.
