Ruselectronics Holding, Rostec State Corporation, has developed domestically-made equivalents of remote and built-in antennas for GPS and GLONASS global positioning systems. The equipment may be used both for commercial products and for special-purpose systems. Batch production of the new antennas is to be launched as early as this year.
As part of the research and development initiative, engineers of Omsk Scientific-Research Institute of Instrument Engineering, Ruselectronics Holding, have designed the prototypes of antennas for GPS and GLONASS signal receipt. For this, passive radiator technology based on high-dielectric constant high-temperature ceramics was developed. The use of such radiators allowed to achieve the same dimensions and specifications as those of imported equivalent products.
“The use of new high-performance and general-circuit solutions enabled our young engineers to develop indigenous equipment which is highly competitive with the similar foreign products. In current situation, such developments are necessary to ensure technological sovereignty of the country. Batch production of new antennas is to be started in 2023,” pointed out Vladimir Berezovsky, General Director of Omsk Scientific-Research Institute of Instrument Engineering.
The development was highly appreciated by the expert jury of the Hope of Russia youth contest held by the Russian Union of Research and Engineering Associations in terms of research and technological development priorities of the Russian Federation.
