Sarantel is a leader in the design of high-performance miniature antennas for portable wireless applications.
Sarantel’s revolutionary ceramic filtering antennas offer dramatically improved performance over existing antenna designs, resulting in a clearer signal, better range and a 90 per cent reduction in the amount of signal radiation absorbed by the body. Because of their smaller size and higher capabilities, Sarantel’s antennas enable manufacturers to create innovative wireless products for the GPS, Satellite Radio and Satellite phone markets.
Sarantel has developed an intellectual property portfolio comprising of over a dozen core patents with hundreds of international filings on the design and production of dielectrically loaded antennas.
Sarantel Limited was formed in March 2000 as a management buyout of technology developed by Dr. Oliver Leisten. The company is based in Wellingborough, UK where its research and development and administrative departments are located next to its world-class manufacturing facility.
The first commercial shipments of innovative GPS antennas began in 2001.

SL1200 Passive Antenna
Based on patented GeoHelix® technology SL1200 GPS antenna provides high performance in difficult GPS applications using a quadrafilar helix design. The SL1200 is ideal for applications where a device is handheld, body-worn, or otherwise surrounded by high-dielectric materials that would de-tune conventional antennas.
The antenna is ideally suited for GPS enabled UMPC/MID applications, tracking devices, DSC/SLR cameras for Geotagging, GPS/GSM mobile devices or and any device which cannot accommodate a large ground plane for the antenna.

SL3101 & SL3105 Passive Iridium Antenna
Built on patented PowerHelix® filtering antenna technology, the SL3101 & SL3105 Iridium antennas provide high performance in difficult Iridium applications using an decafilar helix design. The SL3101 & SL3105 antennas are ideal in applications where:
the device is handheld, body-worn, or otherwise surrounded by high-dielectric materials that would de-tune conventional antennas
the antenna is tightly integrated with other antennas, e.g., Iridium/GPS receivers
there are tight constraints on the size of the device or the amount of space allocated to ground planes
Any product using Iridium modems.
