November 2, 2016  - By

Out today, release 16.11 of Skydel Solutions’ SDX simulation software adds BeiDou to the list of constellations that SDX can simulate. Following release 16.7 in July, which added Galileo, the update makes SDX a multi-constellation, multi-frequency GNSS simulator.

Here are major improvements to the SDX simulator:

  • Added Galileo E1 (16.7)
  • Improvements to the Sky View and the display of multiple constellations (16.7)
  • Added Galileo E5a and E5b (16.11)
  • Added BeiDou B1 and B2 (16.11)
  • New Output configuration panel, replacing Modulation and allowing use of multiple radios (16.11)
GNSS simulation with four simultaneous constellations.

GNSS simulation with four simultaneous constellations.

The GNSS signals offered include:

  • GPS: L1 C/A, L1P, L2P, L2C
  • GPS encrypted codes: Y and M (through Talen-X BroadSim)
  • GLONASS: G1, G2
  • Galileo: E1, E5
  • BeiDou: B1, B2

With the SDX, users can create a complete four-constellation dual-frequency simulation scenario on a single software-defined radio using only commercial-off-the-shelf hardware, Skydel said.
