GPS Receivers &
GPS receivers and antennas accurately determine the orbital position of the satellite, track orbit maneuvers and send/ receive GPS Telemetry.
The NSS Gemini Receiver range is L1 frequency GPS Receivers which utilises a heritage GPS chipset. Targeted towards low-cost SmallSat constellations, it allows for space altitude and velocity use cases. The Gemini-SR5 operates from a 5V supply voltage while the Gemini-SR28 operates from an unregulated 28V supply voltage incorporating latch-up protection/detection and a watchdog timer for increased reliability and robustness. The Gemini Receiver range is based on the existing NGPS-01-422 AND NGPS-03-422 GPS Heritage Receivers with improved performance and accuracy. The Gemini range introduces two new protocol options, NMEA083 and Binary Protocol.
• L1 receiver
• Small size and low mass
• Radiation tolerant COTS
• Simple to interface
• Accurate determination of orbital position
• Accurate knowledge of time
• Orbit maneuvers
• Time and/or position stamping of payload data
The NewSpace Systems (NSS) GPS Receivers are based on the NSS NGPS-01-422 and NGPS-03-422 which have been flying for more than a decade. To date >60 Receivers and >70 Antennae have been delivered globally to a variety of international missions and constellation programmes. The Gemini-SR5 has been extensively qualified and has deliveries scheduled for 2024.
