Tahoe RF wins GPS contract from NASA

September 17, 2012 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
The NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD has awarded a SBIR Phase II program to Tahoe RF Semiconductor Inc., for developing a miniaturized Radiation Hardened Beam-Steerable GPS Receiver Front End for NASA spacecrafts.

This product is designed to improve the signal sensitivity by 10 dB to 25 dB-Hz and improve performance against multipath interferences. This product will provide NASA with ability to track GPS signals above GPS Constellation regions, including all GEO (Geostationary Earth Orbit), HEO (Highly Elliptical Orbit) and cis-lunar missions.

Irshad Rasheed, CEO/President of Tahoe RF comments, “Tahoe RF continues to demonstrate its leadership role in the development of next generation GNSS systems and technologies. In this innovative product, Tahoe RF has combined its two core strengths — proven GPS design expertise and ability to support beam steering and beam forming in the RF IC.”
