BeiDou Numbering Presents Leap-Second Issue

March 3, 2015By
Leap-Second-O

During preparation of playback scenarios for the upcoming leap-second event taking place in June, engineers at Racelogic identified a potential pitfall for GNSS engineers. The difficulty arises from the fact that BeiDou uses a different “day number” for the date to apply the leap second, compared with GPS and Galileo. GPS and Galileo use 1-7 as week day numbers, and... read more

Multiple RF Output Simulation

March 1, 2015By

Spectracom GSG-Series GNSS Simulators have added capability to provide multiple RF outputs for advanced testing where multiple receivers or antennas are in use in a single system. Typical examples include controlled radiation pattern antennas (CRPA) or heading/attitude receivers and systems. The intuitive StudioView software allows easy reconfiguration of test cases to change the conditions seen by one or all receivers... read more
