The Replicator™

a multi-frequency, multi-system GNSS simulator for advanced R&D, equipment testing and education,

it can also function as a recording, playback and signal analysis instrument.

Some of the advantages

1. User defined models with ANSI C Model API.

2. User defined additionalsignals with ANSI C Signal API.

3. GNSS signal analysis

Components:

1) Replicator™ 19 inch rack mount hardware ,

2) ReGen™ control software ,

3) Optional ARAMIS™ software receiver for signal analysis.

The Replicator™ is a result of our 7-year work for and collaboration with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

The ReGen™ is a control center software for multi-frequency, multi-system GNSS simulator. It is intended for advanced R&D, equipment testing and education.

- Simulation of the following signals :

GPS L1,L2,L5 , GLONASS L1,L2,L3, BeiDou B1,B2, Galileo E1,E5, IRNSS L1,S .

- Comprehensive simulation models including atmosphere, multipath etc.(see ReGen data sheet)

- Signal analysis.

- Simulated signals can be stored in digitized format , analysed by a MATLAB software receiver and played back as RF at any time.

iP-SOlutions, Japan GNSS, Reference Station Receiver Data Generator allows to generate raw data and then RF signals for up to four locations with spatially correlated models.

Reference Station Receiver Data Generator allows to generate raw data and then RF signals for up to four locations with spatially correlated models. The signals can be played back as RF signals. This option is useful for RTK, VRS or LAAS simulation.
