GNSS Simulator supports Chinese BeiDou standard.
December 5, 2013 -
Extending functionality of R&S SMBV100A vector signal generator, integrated GNSS simulator features BeiDou/Compass capability. R&S SMBV-K107 option allows users to generate real-time scenarios with up to 24 BeiDou satellites. It supports all possible BeiDou orbits as well as hybrid scenarios with GPS, Galileo, or Glonass satellites. Wide range of options are available for simulating realistic effects such as signal obscuration and multipath propagation.

GNSS Simulator in R&S SMBV100A Now Also Supports Chinese BeiDou Standard
Munich — Rohde & Schwarz extends the functionality of the R&S SMBV100A vector signal generator by adding BeiDou/Compass capability to its integrated GNSS simulator. With the R&S SMBV-K107 option the GNSS simulator now covers the BeiDou standard as well as the GPS, Galileo and Glonass satellite navigation systems.
The new option allows users to generate realtime scenarios with up to 24 BeiDou satellites. R&S SMBV-K107 supports all possible BeiDou orbits and can therefore even simulate satellites that are not yet in orbit. It also supports hybrid scenarios with GPS, Galileo or Glonass satellites. A software update makes it easy to upgrade existing GNSS simulators for BeiDou. No hardware modifications are required.
The R&S SMBV100A permits users to quickly define their own satellite scenarios in order to test GNSS receivers under diverse conditions. A wide range of options are available for simulating realistic effects such as signal obscuration and multipath propagation. These scenarios can now be configured for BeiDou as well.
This inexpensive solution is one of the few on the market that does not require an external PC for testing receivers and components of satellite-based navigations systems. In addition to GNSS signals, the R&S SMBV100A can simulate mobile radio, wireless and radio standards, allowing users to test several functions with a single instrument.
The new R&S SMBV-K107 option is now available from Rohde & Schwarz.
