You may think that if your GPS/GNSS receiver is tested, you don’t have to use a simulator. But your design can change everything, and it may not behave as expected post-integration and in the field.

An American space company that specialized in the design, manufacture and launch of small- and medium-class space and rocket systems for military customers needed to synchronize multiple simulators at once.

A major commercial aerospace manufacturer needed to launch small cube satellites into Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO), with small to medium sized payloads that supported Commercial Lunar Payload Services. Their goal was to simulate GNSS signals with their rockets, each of which had two antennas.

Military aviation programs provide standard pilot training to ensure that they can handle fighters, drone swarms and other advanced threats. But as they run complex flight training scenarios and face off against live and virtual adversaries, what may be overlooked is the value of using GPS/GNSS simulation to duplicate actual cockpit instruments, rather than relying on facsimile instruments.

An Orolia customer required flawlessly synchronized receivers on two different Low Earth Orbits (LEO) with a time difference that could not exceed extremely tight constraints – within +/-100 picoseconds (ps).

When it comes to Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) such as GPS or Galileo, terminology can be confusing. There are several GNSS and regional systems, with more on the horizon. This blog post will explain and clarify some of the most commonly used terms.

Like Europe’s eCall directive, other countries or international organizations are translating their own interpretation of AECS (Accident Emergency Call Systems) and associated tests to get car systems certified in a specific country or region of the world.
By Sylvain Dessapt, Senior Application Engineer
 
Accident Emergency Call Systems (AECS) are becoming more common in cars to harness the potential of new technologies to help improve road safety. For example, eCall is a European initiative intended to bring rapid assistance to motorists involved in a collision anywhere in the European Union. eCall is mandatory in all new cars approved for sale within the EU after April 2018.

The development of autonomous vehicles for road, rail and water demands a comprehensive and repeatable test plan for GNSS. This white paper discusses and outlines testing methods for GNSS performance and vulnerabilities.

M-Code – it is here. Public Law 111-383, Section 913 requires all military GPS user equipment purchased after FY 2017 to be M-Code capable, unless a waiver is issued the Secretary of Defense.

One reason for the Secretary of Defense to issue this waiver has been the unavailability of M-Code user equipment. With Military GPS User Equipment (MGUE), or M-Code receivers, becoming available to vendors, now is the time to start getting serious about integration and performance testing of MGUE and systems that rely on it.
