In global navigation, ideas can literally change the world.
So, what is a GPS Simulator? .......read our White Paper to Learn More >
Scenario-based GNSS Simulators
Marketed under the "Orolia" (formerly "Spectracom") brand in North America and the "Pendulum" brand elsewhere in the world, including Australia and New Zealand, the GSG-5 and GSG-6 Series GPS/GNSS satellite simulators are easy to use, scenario-based instruments that combine a powerful, feature-rich platform with industry-leading value and affordability for any requirement for GPS testing.
The GSG series simulators generate the same RF signals that are broadcast by navigation satellites to test any device or system with a GPS receiver.
Several different configurations are available but all are upgradeable to add capability as your needs for GPS testing grows.
- Powerful and accurate
- Lowest cost-of-ownership
- Lightweight and portable
Advanced GNSS Simulator - Advanced GNSS Simulation, Made Easy
GSG-8 is the newest positioning, navigation, and timing test solution offered through Orolia’s GSG family of simulators. It was developed to deliver the highest standard of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signal testing and sensor simulation performance in an easy to use, upgradable and scalable platform.
GSG-8 features high-end performance with a 1000 Hz simulation iteration rate, high dynamics, real-time synchronization, and simulation of all-in-view satellite signals. Advanced GNSS jamming and spoofing options allow the creation of benign and threat scenarios required to meet the needs of mission-critical applications. GSG- 8 is ideal for any development or integration project that requires sophisticated simulation capabilities in any simulated environment from any point on earth, and beyond.
GSG-8 supports multi-constellation, multi-frequency GNSS simulation and advanced threat scenarios, including jamming, spoofing and repeater simulation. Powered by our industry-leading Skydel simulation engine, GSG-8 can be programmed to simulate operations with all current and future GNSS signals. The ability to simulate multiple synchronized trajectories through multiple instances of the Skydel simulation engine allows testing of complex GNSS systems.
Skydel Simulation Engine
Orolia’s Skydel Simulation Engine offers the best of both worlds: the performance you expect from a top-grade GNSS simulator, coupled with the economy of scale and flexibility of the GPU/SDR architecture.
Packed with a rich feature set including a 1000 Hz simulation iteration rate, remote control from user-defined scripts, and a virtually unlimited number of channels, Skydel offers unmatched flexibility and scalability.
And all of this, packaged in a well-thought-out user interface.
Advanced Multi-Simulator Systems
GSG Series GPS simulators are exquisitly synchronized to accurately generate constellations of global navigation satellites, and other signals, through its single multi-channel output, which opens up more opportunity.
The benefit of accurately timed signals is the ability to synchronize several units to construct advanced test systems and pseudolite-like infrastructure.
Capabilities for Synchronisation
GNSS Vulnerability Test System
Understanding the reaction of GPS-based navigation in various spoofing scenarios is the key to hardening the system against spoofing attacks.
An Intelligent Repeater System
A solution for GPS location of people or assets in indoor/underground environments
An intelligent zone-based GPS repeater system offers a cost-effective positioning solution for GPS-denied locations and in particular road and rail tunnels.
It consists of one Spectracom GPS time server with access to an outdoor GPS antenna and a network connection to GPS simulators. In addition to synchronizing the simulator's date/time, the time server also acts an a RINEX server to provide the data about live constellation. Any number of GPS simulators are set to generate signals corresponding to a fixed known location so GPS devices continue to provide a position fix when cross live sky to GPS-denied boundaries.7
