1 GPS Fiber Transport System

 Portable single GPS timing over Fiber
 GPS optical transmitter receiver

The Thor Fiber portable F-1GPS-TX/RX 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,

GPS 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 the industry.
