GPS Fiber Optic Distribution System
The OFW-3478 GPS Fiber Optic Distribution System is a cost effective turn-key system solution which consists of a GPS Antenna, Transmitter Module, Receiver Module, Surge Suppressor, and all associated coaxial and fiber optic interconnection cables.
The OFW-3478 GPS Fiber Optic Subsystem provides optical conversion of GPS L-Band RF sig-nals in the L1 , L2 and L5 frequency ranges. The Subsystem can support GPS signal transmission over singlemode fiber optic cable with an optical loss budget of 15 dBo. The Subsystem’s optical conversion process is transparent to the GPS signal data modulation format and rate. The Sub-system offers many advantages including Low Noise High Dynamic Range RF characteristics, full spectrum environmental operating range and integrated Health Status Monitoring and Control.
The OFW 3478 provides status monitoring through the use of an onboard processor that com-municates with a host computer over a serial or Ethernet interface. The I/O parameters include laser bias current, optical receive power, internal temperature and alarm monitoring. In addition, an optional integrated Bias-T for LNA powering may be specified. The Subsystem provides a high-performance, cost-effective solution for transporting GPS signals over single mode fiber.
The OFW 3478 can be packaged in alternative form factors including: 1RU x 19” rack chassis and 4RU x 19” high-density plug-in card chassis.
The OFW-3478 GPS Fiber Optic Distribution System can be customized in numerous distribution applications such as a GPS Satellite Simulator Distribution, GPS Base Station Antenna-Remoting/Distribution, or a GPS Shipboard Antenna-Remoting/Distribution.
