The GNSS Firehose is the 1st of the Monta series with Tri-Band and Quad-Constellation receiver. This means it tracks 3 different frequencies and supports 4 different satellite constellation namely GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou. The Firehose also tracks SBAS.
The Firehose receiver can be used in many applications such as raw signal record playback, multipath mitigation modeling, jamming and spoofing environments. Although the Firehose was built with an educational purpose in mind to allow students to create their own application and experiment with different signals and constellations, it can also be used for commercial receiver development.
