Aeroflex’s configurable GPSG-1000 is a truly portable, easy-to-use GPS and Galileo positional simulator.
It fills a gap in the market by providing a low-cost 6 or 12 channel test set that creates three-dimensional simulations. This new simulator is also designed to be software upgradable.
GPS signals simulated: L1, L1C*, L2C*, L5*
Galileo signals simulated: E1, E5**, E5a**, E5b**
Simultaneous GPS/Galileo simulation
WAAS/EGNOS SBAS simulation
Static and dynamic simulations via NMEA-0183 File Record and Playback
6 or 12 channel configurations available with upgrade path (RAIM supported)
Programmable space vehicle (SV)parametrics and health
User or built-in GPS receiver referenced time and date
PVT data available via RS-232
User Defined Data Transferable between Linked GPSG units
Remote control interface Ethernet
* For tracking of L1C, L2C or L5 signals some receivers
require synchronized L1 transmissions.
** For tracking of E5 signals some receivers require
synchronized E1 transmissions.
Simulated 3D position may be user entered in latitude/longitude/height format or 3D position may be dynamically simulated utilizing a multi-leg waypoint entry scheme. An unlimited number of navigation plans may be saved and recalled under a user assigned name.
A built-in GPS receiver allows positional simulation in the form of a range, heading and altitude based on current test set position.
Satellite Vehicle (SV) Selection
All GPSG-1000 configurations allow GPS and Galileo satellites to be mixed. (The Galileo codes may be updated via a text file upload.)
Way point legs join up in 3D space, with either range rate or altituder-rate being auto calculated. Trajectory changes are calculated to simulate real world navigation, i.e. waypoint leg heading changes utilize realistic rates of turn; altitude changes utilize realistic rates of descent or climb. Way points may be entered in LAT/LONG form or automatically recalled from an airport or city database.
SBAS satellites WAAS/EGNOS may be manually selected or automatically based on simulated position.
The setup page allows system, user and RF connection parameters to be set by the user.
