Simulating Automatic Obscuration and Multipath for Realistic GNSS Receiver Testing

The R&S®SMBV100A supports receiver testing under realistic conditions by offering features such as obscuration simulation and automatic multipath generation. Out of a multitude of possible test scenarios – with predefined or user-specific settings – this application note presents some examples to give an impression of the instrument’s capabilities.

GPS, Glonass, Galileo Receiver Testing Using a GNSS Signal Simulator

Testing global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receivers can be done easily, reliably and cost-efficiently by using the R&S®SMBV100A vector signal generator. This GNSS simulator can generate GPS, Glonass and Galileo signals for up to 24 satellites in real time. This application note explains how to perform automated receiver tests using the R&S®SMBV100A.

LTE Location Based Services Technology Introduction

Location Based Services (LBS) involves the process of determining where a device is located. Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) based solutions are highly accurate and the technology of choice for absolute position accuracy, providing the device has a good line-of-sight, but this is not always the case. A device can be in a highly dense…
