Global test and quality solutions provider Averna announced recently at ION GNSS+ that through existing partnerships, real-time GNSS simulation and SATCOM signal generator toolkits will be available for the RP-6500 RF Record and Playback platform, making the RP-6500 an all-in-one solution to support advanced satellite navigation applications.
The RP-6500 platform can record and playback up to 500 megahertz of RF spectrum from 9 kilohertz to 6 gigahertz, as well as simulate all common GNSS signals (BeiDou, Galileo, GLONASS, GPS and Quasi-Zenith Satellite System). The system can also generate satellite communications signals (DVB-S and DVB-S2).
The AvernaRF Studio user interface provides easy configuration, file management, and visualization tools. The system can easily fit into the trunk of a car for driving recording applications, and syncs with a GPS and the Averna DriveView software for synchronized location and video tagging of your data.
Modern GNSS systems often utilize multiple frequencies in a single constellation. The RP-6500 enables wide bandwidth recording, covering all the most common GNSS bands, and allowing multiple constellations to be captured at one time. Designed for GNSS-specific signal conditioning, the system includes a bias tee, amplifier & attenuation for use off-the-shelf with GNSS antenna solutions.
Preloaded with the RF Studioworkflow tool, the RP-6500 Series lets you quickly set up your recordings, add contextual data, visualize weak signals, and analyze your collected RF environments to validate and fine-tune your designs and products, according to the company.
