Introduction

The Trimble® Bullet™ 360 timing antennas are designed specifically for the congested urban environments. GNSS timing application will benefit from increased signal availability and multi-constellation redundancy. In challenging urban environments the increased number of visible satellites will significantly improve the performance of GNSS receiver.

Put It Anywhere

The antenna is housed in weatherproof packaging designed to withstand exposure to shock, excessive vibration, extreme temperatures, rain, snow and sunlight. The dome is all plastic, and the threaded socket in the base of the antenna. The socket accepts either a 1"-14" straight threat (typical marine antenna mount) or a 3/4" pipe thread. The F-type or TNC antenna connector is located inside the threaded socket, which allows the antenna cable to be routed inside a mounting pole and protects the cable connection for added reliability.

Strong Performance

The Bullet 360 antenna is an active GPS L1, Galileo E1, Beidou B1 and GLONASS G1 bands antenna with 28dB preamp (5V DC), 26dB preamp (3.3 VDC). The Bullet 360 filtering improves impunity to other RF signals for reliable performance in hostile RF jamming environments.

Proven Reliability

For over 25 years, Trimble has sold GNSS antennas renowned for their survivability in tough environments. The Bullet 360 antenna is the fifth generation of the proven Bullet antenna family and offers all the reliability and performance benefits that are required for mission critical installations. In unforgiving environments, an antenna failure could be disastrous. Don’t risk it. Select a proven GNSS antenna – the Trimble Bullet 360 antenna.

Recommended Cable & 50/75 Ohm Issue

Trimble recommends the use of a RG59, 75-ohm cable as a low cost and readily available coaxial cable for the Bullet antenna. Extensive testing by Trimble has shown a minimal attenuation factor of less than 0.5dB (1/2dB) loss using the 75 Ohm cable with a 50 Ohm connector and antenna. The GPS frequency of 1575.42 MHz has negligible attenuation effects between the differences of equipment impedance.

Trimble recommends that the utmost consideration be given to the coaxial cable distance from the Bullet III antenna to the GPS module, including the GPS input receive level, using either 50 or 75 ohm coaxial cable. Using Trimble embedded products, allow for a minimum of 18 dB of gain at the R/F connector input of the GPS and 20 dB of gain at the R/F connector for the ThunderBolt Disciplined Clock. While the Bullet antenna will effectively perform for other vendor supplied GPS products, the correct input sensitivity level is required for optimum functionality.

Mounting

The Bullet 360 has a 1”-14 thread and comes with either a TNC or F-TYPE connector.
