GNSS simulator gets web server interface
21 February 2018, Test & Measurement

The LabSat 3 Wideband is a GNSS (global navigation satellite systems) simulator that can record and replay multiple signals from different satellite constellations, simultaneously. Built into a small, portable and lightweight package, it now features remote control via Telnet, and a web server interface.

The web server control makes using the LabSat 3 Wideband very simple. Easily accessed via the LabSat Ethernet connection through a standard web browser, the HTML interface graphically displays bandwidth, centre frequency and signal capture.

To see how it works, an online demo is available (at which allows a user to create configurations as if they were doing it on a live unit. They can set the number of channels, bandwidth and quantisation to see which signals can be recorded and from which constellations, and also ‘replay’ a scenario to see how it is represented in the GNSS monitor.

Small, battery-powered and with a removable solid state disk, the GNSS simulator allows for quickly gathering detailed, real-world satellite data and replay these signals on a bench. With three channels, a bandwidth of up to 56 MHz and 6-bit sampling (3-bit I and 3-bit Q), LabSat 3 Wideband can handle almost any combination of constellation and signal that exists today, with plenty of spare capacity for future planned signals.
