Successfully navigating GNSS Antenna Manufacturing Challenges: Balancing Performance and Production Efficienc

Manufacturing GNSS antennas with ceramic cores presents challenges due to material and dimensional variations, resulting in frequency discrepancies between units. High precision machining can improve yield but raises costs therefore, many manufacturers opt for air-cores, printed and manually assembled, leading to larger, costlier, and less versatile antennas.

Helix Geospace revolutionises GNSS antennas with 3D-printed helical designs using novel ceramics. These smaller antennas maintain precise performance, thanks to tighter phase centres and consistent radiation patterns. Their AI-driven manufacturing process adapts to material variations, ensuring high performance at scale.

Helix’s method enables the production of multi-band antennas on a single core, meeting global GNSS demands while democratising access to advanced technology across various applications.
