LabSat by Racelogic is looking forward to sharing news on technology developments and product launches at ION GNSS+ in Miami, Sept. 26-28.
After a year’s development, the company is announcing a major update of its SatGen simulation software for use with LabSat 3 Wideband. SatGen software allows you to create a GNSS RF I&Q or IF data file that can be replayed on a LabSat which is based on a user-generated trajectory file. This allows you to simulate almost any kind of test, at a set time and date, anywhere in the world, according to the company.By Inside GNSS
