Orolia, the world leader in resilient positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) solutions, has released the GSG-7, the latest Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signal testing solution offered through the Orolia family of Skydel-based simulators. The GSG-7 features a small form factor, an internal RF combiner, high-end performance with a 1000 Hz simulation iteration rate, real-time synchronization, Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) integration, powerful automation, and multi-constellation and multi-frequency simulations. Powered by Orolia’s industry-leading Skydel simulation engine, the GSG-7 can be programmed to simulate operations with all current GNSS signals, as well as future ones. Skydel’s architecture renders the GSG-7 future-proof by allowing new, incoming signals and updates to be implemented through software updates.
“The GSG-7 is redefining the essential and high capabilities in GNSS simulation with its ease of use, advanced simulation capabilities, reduced size, and competitive price. Leveraging the powerful Skydel software and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware, GSG-7 can accommodate almost any configuration to conduct system testing and simulation. The use of SDRs means that maintenance and customization are not only easier but more cost-effective than other options on the market. Capable of handling complex simulation scenarios, the GSG-7 has a simple, yet powerful application program interface (API) ensuring easy automation and integration into your test environment. Users can also benefit from advanced HIL capabilities that include an industry-leading zero-effective latency, and built-in performance monitoring tools,” said Lisa Perdue, Simulation Product Line Director.
The GSG-7 simulator is ideal for development and integration projects that require high performance, all-in-view satellite signals, and an increased number of GNSS constellations. Skydel is the world’s leading software-based simulation platform. From home offices to research labs to automotive manufacturing to defense, Skydel can meet a variety of testing needs with turn-key hardware solutions or a BYOH (Bring-Your-Own-Hardware) option. Founded in 2006, Orolia became the world leader in Resilient PNT in just a few years. With 10 acquisitions in the US and Europe successfully integrated in less than 7 years, Orolia rapidly became one of the few global providers of precise, rugged and reliable positioning, navigation, timing (PNT) solutions that are critical for governments, military, aerospace and defense markets.
