Topcon Announces New Geodetic Antenna
Topcon Positioning Group has released a new full-wave geodetic antenna — the G5-A1. The portable antenna is designed to provide improved multipath mitigation for use with a mobile base station site or network reference station.
“When paired with the Topcon NET-G5 receiver, the zero-centered geodetic antenna provides a powerful and cost-effective entry-level solution,” says Charles Rihner, vice president of the Topcon GeoPositioning Solutions Group.
The G5-A1 is optimized for geospatial industries and designed to track all globally available and developing satellite constellations. The antenna weighs approximately 1 pound and is 7 inches wide.
“With its portability and geodetic level performance, the new G5-A1 antenna provides an excellent choice for mobile base system and economy reference station system,” said Rihner.
