NSS (CubeSat) GPS Receiver
The NewSpace GPS Receiver is a 12 channel hardware-based receiver utilising a wellestablished GPS chipset. This GPS chipset has been successfully flown by a number of organisations over many years. It has been adapted for space altitude and velocity through the use of custom software modifications; the unit is targeted towards small, low cost satellites.
The NewSpace GPS Receiver includes an unregulated, isolated 28V power input and differential interfaces. It employs latch-up detection/ protection and a watchdog timer for increased reliability and robustness.
If required by the client, NewSpace can also supply an active GPS patch antenna with the receiver. Additionally, the GPS circuitry at the heart of the receiver can also be deployed as a mezzanine board to accompany the CubeSat ACS board.
