Adversarial navigation warfare (NAVWAR) attacks are becoming more sophisticated, and protecting your GNSS systems from jamming and spoofing is more critical than ever before. Controlled Reception Pattern Antennas (CRPAs) are an extremely effective anti-jam/spoof solution to respond to these threats because they adapt dynamically to jamming or spoofing signals.

For critical CRPA systems, regular testing and simulation in a test lab prior to fielding are essential to identify weaknesses, prevent system failure and ensure continuous NAVWAR operations. Yet testing for sophisticated jamming and spoofing events can be challenging. That’s where Orolia’s CRPA Testing Toolkit can help. It will give you the background, knowledge and confidence to reliably test your CRPA system to combat adversarial threats.

Powered by the Skydel software engine

Orolia’s CRPA testing solutions are powered by the Skydel software engine, a real-time simulation software that runs on Linux or Windows. What does it mean to have a software-defined architecture? To generate GNSS signals, it requires a GPU that is used as a co-processor, and a software defined radio to convert the IQ data into RF. Image: Orolia and Orolia Defense & Security

Flexible: Run Skydel on your own hardware. Or, pair it with Orolia’s high-end COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) hardware to create a turnkey system. Or, run Skydel on your own hardware.

Scalable: Because it is not hardware-dependent, Skydel’s software-based architecture lets you scale down to meet simple requirements … or scale up to test more complex applications like CRPA.

Affordable: Traditional GNSS simulators rely on FPGAs and custom-designed hardware that is either too expensive or provides limited capabilities. Orolia’s Skydel Simulation Engine uses GPU-accelerated computing and software-defined radios (SDR).
