GPS Antenna Coupler from CCX Technologies Released

T-RX Nav Systems Testing Suite Gets High-Isolation Function Checking Equipment

CCX has debuted a new GPS Antenna Coupler at the AEA National Convention & Trade Show's New Product Introduction Session.

The device is designed for use with CCX's T-RX Avionics Tester to validate and function check aircraft GPS, navigation systems, and radios, providing more than 20 dB of antenna isolation to ensure the test results are clear and free of external GPS Signals during the check. The Coupler is a part of the complete CCX testing kit, which also includes the T-RX GPS Signal Generator and additional tester. The system is rugged enough for continued use in the hustle and bustle of the hangar environment, and supports GPS antennas up to 6" in diameter.

The system simulates up a constellation of 6 satellites, including WAAS/GENOS and offers dynamic GPS locations using latitude and longitude, altitude track, and vertical rate. The couple works with other systems, enabled by its 9.8' coaxial cable for the freedom to connect wherever is most convenient. The T-RX Avionics Tester system can be updated with the newest GPS Almanac to ensure consistently accurate results.

The wireless, touch-screen tablet is a lightweight, portable way to check navigational systems, supporting all the hits: VOR, Localizer, Glideslope, ILS, Markers, VHF comms, TCAS, Transponders, and ADS-B of every (apparent) sort and description. 

“Testing aircraft GPS radios can be finicky because GPS satellite signals must be excluded during the tests, and you don’t want to interfere with another aircraft’s GPS while testing the aircraft,” said Chris Bartlett, president of CCX Technologies.

“Our new GPS Antenna Coupler provides superior signal isolation so that testing can occur inside or outside the hangar without worrying about interference from satellites or interfering with the GPS radios of other nearby aircraft. Today, we are extremely pleased to unveil this new product at the AEA Convention. It is the ideal place to launch new avionics equipment.”
