systems are available to support the remote location of industrial
GPS antennas. These kits are assembled and tuned to the unique
requirements of each application. Thor GPS over fiber systems are an
excellent solution for distance limitation between maritime or
government GPS antennas and radio signal receiver equipment. Typically
any sensor equipment or tuning hardware such as universal time receivers
or GPS navigation gear must be installed and located within 100 ft of
the antenna system. Most modern industrial type systems require
antennas with a clear view of the horizon to function properly. In the
case of large ocean going vessels, underground military installations,
or large buildings or structures(metropolis); it can be a challenge to
install GPS equipment within 100 ft of a suitable antenna location. Thor
solves this problem by extending the distance to over 20km by
converting the GPS signal from the antenna's coax to fiber optic cable.
F-GPS systems are available in a variety of form factors, and can be
custom tuned to individual users applications.
GPS reference timing signals are widely used to synchronize cellular base stations.
systems typically consist of an active rooftop antenna, a GPS receiver
and a length of coaxial cable to connect them. Common challenges arise
when the distance between the rooftop antenna and the cellular base
station equipment (usually in the basement) is greater than 300 ft.
Coaxial cable runs over 300 ft are not practical for most GPS receiver
systems, so a fiber optic link is required at such distances, and Thor
Fiber optic links are some of the most trusted, cost-effective links in
