Timing Multi-GNSS Receiver Module Model GT-88 NEW

Extremely high stability of 4.5ns (1sigma) using a single band receiver

The GT-88 is the high-stability, high-accuracy timing Multi-GNSS receiver.
It incorporates Dynamic Satellite Selection™, which is a new satellite signal selection algorithm developed by NTT. Thanks to that GT-88 permits GNSS antennas to be mounted more freely than ever before including wall mounting and window mounting installations.

Timing

Features

  • Enable to output accurate and robust UTC time and 1PPS synchronized with UTC time

    FURUNO technology made it possible to achieve 5G-required performance. 4.5ns (1 sigma) by a single band receiver is obtained. This is achieved by an improved and advanced position estimation algorithm. It optimizes position calculations using several different GNSS satellite constellations. It allows users to achieve 5G-required performance without changing existing single band GNSS antennas.

  • GNSS antennas can be mounted on walls and windows of tall buildings

    The Dynamic Satellite Selection™* minimizes deterioration of time synchronization performance by choosing only the high quality satellite signals
    * a new satellite signal selection algorithm developed by NTT

  • Suitable for various RF・Broadcasting applications. Designed functions aiming to solve usual troubles on site.

    The number of radio stations applied with GNSS time synchronization, ex. PMR, local 5G, and V2X, has been increasing year by year. Especially in urban area, users have to face problems such as urban canyon (signals blocked) and multi-path (signals reflected) etc.

Countermeasure for GNSS receiver failure

We provide technical white papers for each of the typical failures caused by GNSS receiver. For each failures, our experts in time synchronization explain details about countermeasures on receiver side, using diagrams to show the effectiveness, and how to select products. If you are considering a GNSS receiver for the first time, please take a look.

    White Paper: Industry-leading multipath mitigation in urban canyon environments
  2. Jamming (interference wave)
    White Paper: Measures against GNSS jamming (jamming wave)
  3. Spoofing
    White Paper: Measures against GNSS spoofing signals
  4. Interruption of GNSS signal (holdover)
    White Paper: "Holdover function" as measures against GNSS reception interruptions

The GT-88 doesn't have holdover function. If necessary, please use GF-8802/GF-8803/GF-8804/GF-8805 instead.
