ION GNSS+ 2015 Conference

The Skydel Team at ION GNSS+ 2015
First of all, we would like to thank everyone who has visited our Booth at ION GNSS+ 2015. It was exhilarating to have face to face discussions with GNSS experts who face challenges requiring innovative test solutions. This great feedback is essential to build the best GNSS simulator, addressing today’s most demanding requirements.

We saw a lot of interest in our new GNSS simulator. One of the most important reasons is the flexibility of our software-defined approach, which allows customization and scalability.

Skydel GNSS Simulator 15.9 helps you find vulnerabilities in your receiver

In the latest release of our GNSS Simulator, we introduced two exciting features that will help users detect vulnerabilities in their receivers.

Skydel GNSS Simulator 15.9 new features

Navigation message modification and/or corruption
The user now have full control over the Navigation Message transmitted by each satellite. The GUI lets the user schedule modifications to any part of the message by changing any bit; even the parity bits can be modified to momentarily corrupt the message.

Skydel GNSS simulator: a new Python API

We are very proud to announce the latest version of our GNSS simulator (15.8), which provides a new Python API.
Release 15.8 with Python scripting API

We have chosen the Python scripting language because it is easy to learn and widely used in the industry and universities. With this new interface, users will now be able to:

  • Control remotely the GNSS simulator, without interacting with the GUI.
  • Create tests cases with complex sequences of commands, in which each command can be time stamped to ensure each run generates the exact same signal.
  • Do repeatability testing and statistical analysis.
  • Build a test cases library, from which tests can be selected and executed in different modes such as batch, repeat, random, etc…

Here’s a 2-minute introduction video, showing the new Python API in action with our GNSS simulator.

Inside GNSS Magazine publication

In its August/September issue, Inside GNSS Magazine published a thorough article which explains how Skydel is able to generate GNSS signals in real-time. Written by Professor René Jr Landry from “École de Technologie Supérieure” University and Iurie Ilie from Skydel Solutions, the article describes the architecture and the performance of Skydel’s GNSS simulator that combines the real-time computational capabilities of a GPU and universal software radio peripherals.

Skydel and Averna Team Up

We’re very excited to team up with Averna. We are also very pleased to announce that our GNSS Simulator can be combined with Averna’s RP-6100 Series. Our technologies complement each other perfectly, making the combined solution the ideal platform for high-performance design validation of RF and GNSS devices.
