Explorer GPS Receiver
Building on the 200+ years of on-orbit Viceroy® performance
General Dynamics’ Explorer Global Positioning System (GPS) Spaceborne Receiver provides position, velocity, and time information for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) applications. Performance and satellite visibility are enhanced through the use of dual antennas (LEO configuration only); each of the 12 GPS channels can be assigned to either antenna. The design supports an RS-422 bus interface.
- Design based on legacy space qualified digital design
- 20 years of trouble-free spaceflight heritage
- Same reliable position, velocity, time, pseudorange and carrier phase at 1Hz
- Same form-factor and interface control as heritage Viceroy receiver
