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.

for engineers, designers, and research institutes, the company said.

Skydel now offers these satellite signals:

  • GPS: L1 C/A, L1P, L2P, L2C
  • GPS encrypted codes: Y & M through Talen-X Broadsim
  • GLONASS: G1, G2
  • Galileo: E1, E5
  • BeiDou: B1, B2

SDX can be set up, or upgraded, with a PC and dual SDR to simulate a
wide range of satellite signals, the company said. This configuration
can meet tough GNSS simulation requirements, including those in a
real-time kinematic (RTK) test environment, SDX said.

SDX offers an updated settings panel for the output feature, which
allows the simulator to add multiple radios. Since many users have a
preferred SDR setup, there’s a set as template feature to start a new
simulation configuration, the company said.

SDX also released a new user manual that covers hardware configurations;
provides guidance for software installation, network cards and GPU
drivers; and goes over the use of the software in detail with clear
explanations and screenshots, the company said.
