Leica AR10 GNSS Antenna
Multi-purpose GNSS antenna with integrated radome
Thanks to the integrated radome, the Leica AR10 prevents build up of snow which could otherwise degrade signal quality.The non-spherical radome is designed for optimal signal quality and has the added benefit of discouraging birds from perching on the antenna, a common source of signal attenuation with rounded radomes. The aerodynamic shape of the antenna reduces wind loading and together with the light weight ensures that the Leica AR10 can be used with a variety of antenna masts or as a field or campaign base on a tripod. Constructed using a robust and UV resistant enclosure the Leica AR10 is made to withstand extreme temperature, humidity, dust, salt, solar radiation, pollution, shock and vibration.
Designed from the ground up for wideband tracking, the new wideband antenna technology introduced in the Leica AR10 provides superior low elevation tracking, multipath suppression and antenna phase centre accuracy across all frequency bands. An all new low noise amplifier (LNA) is used to provide exceptional low measurement noise for superior measurement quality. The new LNA technology also has excellent out of band rejection, helping to significantly reduce potential interference due to jamming. The Leica AR10 is suitable for use with antenna cable lengths up to 70 m without the need for an in-line amplifier.
With emerging satellite systems close on the horizon, such as the European Galileo system and the Chinese Compass (Beidou 2) system, it is more important than ever before to have a true GNSS antenna. In line with Leica Geosystems “future proof” philosophy, the Leica AR10 has been designed for all existing and currently planned signals of the GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Compass global navigation satellite systems and the SBAS, QZSS, Gagan, OmniSTAR and other L-band augmentation systems.
