GPS Source announces the release of the GLI-METRO GPS Smart Amplifier unit. A smart GPS controller designed with technology derived from high performance systems and military applications, it is very dependable. Capable of handling any L1 GPS Signal application (optional L2 for approved markets), it has many highly desired features, including receive antenna monitoring, automatic output power control and oscillation detection.
With the GLI-METRO, the user has complete control over effective radiated power (ERP) levels. Embedded within the GLI-METRO is a power control feature that will maintain a chosen output signal level. Regardless of the uncertain loss or gain in the receive antenna cable network, it will automatically condition the signal and prevent changes in performance. With an optional Bluetooth wireless interface, it may be configured remotely when access to the system is not convenient.
Robert Horton of GPS Source, said "We are excited to have the opportunity bring the GLI-METRO to market. The frustration of trying to get a high quality GPS signal, inside a building or covered structure is over. This is a state-of-the-art GPS smart amplifier system that will help anyone safely bring the GPS signal inside."
The GLI-Metro is currently in production and will be available January 2011. A CE and Notified Body approved version for the European market will be available in mid-January 2011.
