Multi-constellation GNSS simulation from the T&M experts

Your challenge

GNSS receiver tests can only be conclusive when they are performed under realistic conditions. A complete GNSS simulation must therefore include proper simulation of the satellite orbits, the signal propagation characteristics, the characteristics of the receive antenna and the receiver environment. Realistic modeling of user movement taking into consideration vehicle attitude is also part of this simulation process. Generation of interfering signals may also be of interest to set up a simulation environment that is close to reality.

Our solutions

With GNSS test solutions from R&S, your GNSS simulations are as realistic as possible and can be performed under well-defined and controlled conditions. All GNSS scenarios are fully customizable and repeatable. R&S offers a variety of different GNSS test solutions:

  • GNSS waveforms for basic receiver testing
  • GNSS production tester (R&S®SMBV-P101)
  • GNSS constellation simulator for single-frequency receiver characterization (R&S®SMBV100A)
  • High-end GNSS constellation simulator for sophisticated multi-constellation, multi-frequency, multi-antenna and multi-vehicle testing (R&S®SMW200A)

R&S®WinIQSIM2™ simulation software

Many R&S signal generators can be used to play back GNSS waveforms. This approach can be used to set up a basic and cost-efficient single-channel test environment, which can be used in the early stages of GNSS receiver development.

Product information

R&S®SMBV-P101 GNSS production tester

The GNSS production tester was designed especially for GNSS chipset testing and speed-optimized production testing of GNSS receivers. It supports GPS, Glonass, BeiDou and Galileo.

Product information

R&S®SMBV100B vector signal generator

In order to characterize the performance of GNSS receivers, their basic functions need to be tested under controlled and repeatable conditions. The GNSS simulator in the R&S®SMBV100B is the ideal tool for single-frequency receiver characterization.
