Short designation TR240-2E


Would you like to learn something about GPS, Galileo, BeiDou and Glonass? Do you need some theory about these systems and practical examples in order to find a solution for your lab or a production line?


We will start with the basics of satellite navigation by taking a look at GNSS, GBAS and SBAS. That is, we will deal with the theory behind GPS, Glonass, BeiDou and Galileo. We will discuss how to set up a multifrequency test, and I will demonstrate a possible solution using an R&S®SMW200A along with two R&S®SGT. We will generate 144 channels and use four RF outputs. This would allow e.g. multi-antenna tests too. Finally, we will look into remote control of the measuring instruments, including via SCPI commands.

We will use the R&S®SMW200A multipurpose instrument to perform different tasks, e.g. generating Galileo and LTE. I will show how to use the instruments, and you will have the opportunity to operate them yourself. (If you want to use your own DUTs, please consult us beforehand.)
