Harxon showcased high-precision positioning GNSS antennas and its latest wireless data-transmission technologies for UAV applications at AUVSI Xponential, which was held April 30-May 4 in Denver.

The Harxon D-Helix Antenna.

Harxon’s D-Helix is a patented D-QHA (dual-quadrifilar helix antenna) multi-constellation antenna supports excellent reception of GPS, Galileo, BeiDou and GLONASS, as well as L-band signals. Harxon D-QHA technology ensures the ability of low elevation satellites tracking while maintaining 4-dBi high gain, which makes the D-Helix antenna an excellent choice for any applications where the sky is partially visible, the company said.

The antenna’s low noise amplifier (LNA) with out-of-band rejection performance can suppress electromagnetic interference. Moreover, the D-Helix features the latest low wind resistance design with ruggedized IP67 protection for UAV inspection and monitoring, survey and mapping or agricultural UAVs.
