Characterizing CRPAs and other adaptive antennas
How to test CRPAs and other advanced GNSS antenna designs
Testing Controlled Reception Pattern Antennas (CRPAs) and other advanced GNSS antenna designs is crucial as anti-jamming and anti-spoofing capabilities become essential for mission-critical GNSS receivers and systems. The threats of signal jamming and spoofing are on the rise, both from civilian sources and as electronic warfare methods deployed by nation states. Adaptive antennas, originally developed for military use, are now increasingly used in commercial applications such as surveying, mining, and autonomous vehicles.
