Expert Opinions: Considerations for simulating GNSS signals for UAVs

March 22, 2017By
Iurie Ilie, Chief Technical Officer, Skydel

Q: What are the key factors to consider when simulating GNSS signals for UAVs?   A: For UAV simulation, a record-and-playback system is obviously less applicable, as the user is more interested in defining system operability within a range of parameters rather than in any generalized case. A high-dynamic user performance is required, but users should look at a simulator’s... read more

SDX release 17.1 adds fine level of control on signal multipath

February 15, 2017By
The new arm button in the dashboard.

Skydel SDX Release 17.1 adds a fine level of control on signal multipath to the software-defined GNSS simulator. SDX 17.1 introduces a powerful multipath simulation option, enabling users to create less-than-ideal signal propagation conditions for GNSS testing. Multipath echoes can be added and fined-tuned for each satellite, per signal. Control is possible via four fundamental attributes: pseudorange offset, power loss, Doppler shift... read more
