If you are selling, testing or developing products incorporating satellite navigation chipsets, then you’ll find LabSat3 makes your job easier, quicker and more cost effective.

Why use a Simulator?
LabSat3 records and replays real world data, allowing realistic and repeatable testing to be carried out under controlled conditions. Signal artefacts including multipath, ionospheric effects and signal dropouts are reproduced and there are no limits to the number of satellites used in the test.
Conventional testing usually requires driving the same route multiple times, where conditions vary and satellite constellations change between tests. This can make it very challenging to reproduce and fault find software errors or reception issues with the device under test.
Using LabSat3 saves many hours of work, allowing you to quickly pinpoint errors and verify ‘corner cases’ without leaving the test bench.
A very useful feature is the ability to record and replay additional streams of data using the high speed digital port(s) onLabSat3. In this way, CAN bus data, RS232 signals or digital event triggers can be fully synchronised during playback, bringing a whole new level of realism to your bench simulations.

How does it work?
LabSat3 receives the signal from a standard satellite antenna, but instead of processing each of the received signals to calculate a position fix, LabSat3 digitises and stores the original satellite signals at a very high bandwidth onto a removable SD card or USB disk.
The RF output of the LabSat3 is then connected to the antenna input of the device under test and the recorded data is replayed back as an RF signal. The device under test will then start to track the satellites as though it was travelling along the same path taken by the LabSat3 during the original recording.

How easy is it to use?
One touch record/replay makes LabSat3extremely simple to operate. With its rugged construction, built in battery and clear display, it is very easy to use the LabSat3 in the same environment as your product will experience in everyday use, with little or no training.
A free library of pre-recorded and simulated files from around the world is included to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

What constellations can I record?
Each LabSat can be tuned to one of 3 user selectable frequencies:

1. 1575.420 MHz – GPS L1, Galileo E1, SBAS, QZSS
2. 1602.000 MHz - GLONASS L1
3. 1561.098 MHz - BeiDou B1
