GPS Source, Inc., has released the latest addition to its military product line, a military qualified, in-line GPS amplifier, MA11M.

The MA11M is a military-grade device used to strengthen the signal and reach of GPS. It is designed for GPS conditions where there is a weak signal. This amplifier is designed to work with an external, active antenna, and is primarily for use by military applications (both ground and air) around the world.

“GPS Source realizes the importance of protecting our national assets by designing products that can handle rigorous military environmental demands,” said Robert Horton, CEO of GPS Source. “This amplifier has been qualified for temperature, altitude, explosive atmosphere, humidity, vibration, among many other challenging conditions. The qualifications allow the military to use this device without reservation.  Test summaries (MIL-STD-810 and EMI) are available upon request.”

The ruggedized MA11M GPS amplifier is designed with the thin link margins of satellite navigation systems in mind, and is a single-stage gain block that covers the GPS, Galileo, and GLONASS frequencies. The device features 30 dB of gain and excellent gain flatness of less than 1 dB.
