SDX GNSS Simulator Covers Four Satellite Navigation Systems

SDX GNSS Simulation with Four Simultaneous Constellations

With the addition of BeiDou B1 and B2 signals, Longueuil, Canada-based
Skydel’s (SDX) GNSS simulator now covers the four global navigation
satellite systems, the company said. SDX also added Galileo signals E5a
and E5b.

With these new updates, SDX said it is now possible to create a GNSS
simulation with a four-constellation, dual-frequency test scenario on a
single software-designed radio (SDR). The SDX GNSS simulator is ideal
for engineers, designers, and research institutes, the company said.

Skydel now offers these satellite signals:
