About FalTech GPS
FalTech GPS is a company specialized in GPS repeater technology, providing indoor coverage solutions that allow GPS-enabled devices to be used, tested, repaired and calibrated inside any building or space where it was previously impossible.
GPS repeater systems
Most of the available solutions are based around a GPS repeater (sometimes called a re-radiator) that amplifies the signal received by an outdoor antenna and makes it available indoors.
We have repeaters available for the GPS L1 band (1575 MHz), the L2 band (1227 MHz), the Russian GLONASS system (1602 MHz) and the European system known as Galileo (1575 MHz).
We supply GPS repeater systems in kit form – all the components you need come as a complete package with full installation instructions.
For those situations where a standard kit isn’t enough, we are happy to provide a custom-designed solution based on your specific requirements.
FalTech is proud to be the UK-based distributor for manufacturer Roger GPS of Helsinki, Finland.
GPS over fibre
To overcome the limitations of coaxial cables over long distance we can specify a GPS-over-fibre solution that extends the feeder cable up to approximately 10km on single-mode fibre.
Iridium repeater systems
The Iridium constellation of 66 low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites provide truly global mobile satellite communications. However, indoor use of Iridium satphones and data terminals is often impossible due to the blocking effect of the building structure.
FalTech supplies Iridium repeater systems that allow two-way satellite communications inside any space that doesn’t have sky view. Optical fibre links extend the distance between the outdoor antennas and the indoor space by up to 3Km.
See the range of optical fibre and coax-based Iridium repeaters here.
DAB radio repeater systems
The same blocking effect that keeps GPS and Iridium signals out of a building also have prevent DAB radio signals from reaching the interior of some spaces.
For example, it is sometimes impossible to operate or demonstrate a DAB radio in a car showroom, even when the outdoor signal is perfect. Instead of removing a vehicle to the car park to allow the DAB radio to work, we can bring the outdoor signal inside with a DAB radio repeater system.
See our case study of a customer who needed GPS, DAB and FM radio in a automotive research facility.
Our experience comes from several years in RF and IT-related industries, which places us perfectly to advise on the ideal solution for your indoor coverage needs.
FalTech GPS is based in Falmouth, Cornwall and has supplied GPS repeater systems all over the UK, Europe, North America and India.
