Racelogic updates Labsat’s SatGen software to simulate L2C and L5

The software now includes simulation of the L2C and L5 GPS signals, meaning that SatGen V3 can be used to create one scenario containing all 13 signals from GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou constellations, the company said.

The simulation accuracy has also been improved — for example, most of the GPS pseudorange residuals are now sub-meter.

Signals that can be simulated simultaneously with SatGen V3 Wideband include:

  • GPS:​ L1, L1P, L2C, L2P, L5I, L5Q, L1M, L2M (noise only)
  • BeiDou: B1I, B1-2I, B2I

SatGen software allows users to create a GNSS RF I&Q or IF data file that can be replayed on a LabSat, which is based on a user-generated trajectory file. This allows simulators of almost any kind of test, at a set time and date, anywhere in the world.

SatGen complements the LabSat range of GNSS simulators, and is available in single, dual, triple and multi-frequency/multi-constellation versions.

LabSat showcased the upgrade at the ION GNSS+ conference, which took place Sept. 24-28 in Miami.
