NovAtel Antennas


The VEXXIS GNSS-501 antenna from NovAtel is ideal for ground vehicles in applications such as mobile mapping, agriculture and machine control. The combination of intelligent enclosure design of the GNSS-501 is easy to install or move between ground vehicle platforms with magnetic mounting options.

The GNSS-501 antenna supports single-frequency GPS L1, GLONASS L1, Galileo E1, and BeiDou B1. It also supports L-Band signal reception.

The antenna has a weatherproof design with IP67 rating. Its MIL-STD-810G rating has been earned through 1000 hours of intense vibration testing. Moreover, its water-resistant design allows it to operate even under high pressure spray or heavy rainfall.

The superior multi-path signal rejection of the GNSS-501 provides excellent circularly polarized, symmetric radiation patterns. The key to achieving extraordinary performance is strictly balancing the signals and feeding the antenna at multiple points. The multi-point feeding network provides very low loss and frequency independent amplitude/phase balance.


  • Supports single-frequency GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou signals

  • L-Band signal reception, supporting correction services such as TerraStar

  • Multi-point antenna feed provides stable phase center and enhanced multipath rejection

  • Designed for high quality performance when used with NovAtel’s STEADYLINE technology

  • Low-profile design ideal for machine control applications
