Aeroflex Introduces Portable Positional Simulator for
April 5, 2010
Wichita, KS — Aeroflex today introduced the GPSG-1000, a portable GPS
and Galileo positional simulator. The GPSG-1000 is lightweight, easy to
use, configurable, and inexpensive. It fills a gap in the market by
providing a low-cost 12-channel test set that creates three-dimensional
simulations for under $20,000.
With the advent of GPS signal modernization, many
GPS simulators on the market today are now obsolete. The GPSG-1000
supports civil and military avionics field and bench maintenance
technicians, production test technicians, and system integrators with a
modern simulator for L1, C/A code and L1C, L2C, L5 GPS modernization
signals, as well as new Galileo E1, E5, E6 services. It can be
configured with single channel, 6-channel, or 12-channel simulation.
Typical tests include acquisition sensitivity, tracking sensitivity,
time-to-first-fix for cold/warm/hot starts, time-to-second-fix,
positional accuracy, RAIM failure tolerance, and subsystem stimulation
for 3D flight execution.
