Spectracom has added capability to simulate India’s global navigation satellite system, IRNSS, and Japan’s regional satellite system, QZSS, to its GSG-6 Series multi-frequency GNSS signal simulator. The simulator is designed to be field upgradeable to simulate all current and future GNSS constellations so current customers can benefit from these features without the need for a factory return in most cases.

“Spectracom understands the need for system developers and integrators to be compatible with various GNSS systems. Support for multiple constellations is a requirement in many markets and additional satellites add signal diversity for improved reliability,” said Spectracom Global Sales and Marketing Vice President Rohit Braggs. “Our easy-to-use, compact and affordable GNSS simulator can now be configured with IRNSS and QZSS capability in addition to the big four: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo. Our customers can buy what they need now and easily upgrade in the future, often times without a hardware upgrade.”

In anticipation of the deployment of new GNSS systems, Spectracom ensures that every GSG simulator that leaves the factory is tested for compliance with all L-band signal frequency and modulation specifications as defined in their ICDs, the company said.

The Series 6 multi-frequency simulator is fully capable of all four bands of any system: L1 / E1 / B1; L2 / L2C; L5 / E5 / B2; and E6 / B3.

“As we have seen with our recent roll-out of Beidou and Galileo signal compatibility, when the need for new signals arise, we will offer those capabilities with a simple upgrade path,” Braggs said. “This ensures our customer’s investment is always protected.”
