GPS/GNSS Simulators

Future proof GPS test systemOur GPS/GNSS simulators are easy to use, scenario-based instruments that combine a powerful, feature-rich platform with industry-leading value and affordability for any requirement for GPS testing.

Spectracom GSG series simulators generate the same RF signals that are broadcast by navigation satellites to test any device or system with a GPS receiver. Several different configurations are available but all are upgradeable to add capability as your needs for GPS testing grows.

GSG Series Simulator Benefits

  • Powerful and accurate
  • Lowest cost-of-ownership
  • Easy-to-configure
  • Easy-to-operate
  • Easy-to-connect
  • Lightweight and portable

GSG-51 Single Channel GNSS Tester

Single-channel GPS/GNSS L1 RF Generator

The GSG-51 is a GNSS signal generator that emulates a single satellite signal. The main application is a simple but very fast manufacturing test, to assure that the assembly is correct, that the antenna is properly connected, and that the receiver can receive and identify a satellite signal. It provides a fast and cost-effective solution for production test of GNSS-receivers in e.g. mobile phones with integrated GNSS-receivers. Thanks to the wide RF level range from –65 to –160 dBm, the sensitivity of all types of GNSS receivers can be verified with a minimum of delay. The 60 dB of extra power from normal test scenarios allows from splitting the signal many times.

GSG-5 Series Multi-channel Advanced GNSS Simulator

Multi-channel GPS/GNSS L1 RF Generator

The GSG-5 series is a GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, and QZSS constellation simulator that generates all commercial signals in the standard L1 band. It offers the standard set of features for testing GNSS systems. With a base of four channels, configurable and upgradable to 8, 16, or more signals, this configuration is the perfect fit for navigational fix and position testing, for in-line product testing or engineering and development.

GSG-6 Multi-Channel, Multi-Frequency Advanced GNSS Simulator

Multi-channel, Multi-Frequency GPS/GNSS RF Generator

The GSG-6 Series family offers multiple frequency band operation, multiple GNSS constellation simulation, and expansion to many more channels. Incorporating all of the features of the popular 5 Series family, the 6 Series line expands your capability to simulate all the new, emerging GNSS signals. With a base of 32 channels, upgradable to 48, 64, or more, it provides navigational fix and position testing, for engineering and development testing. The 6 Series simulator protects your investment by being upgradeable in the future to more frequency bands and channels (plug-in hardware upgrade) and more signal formats (firmware upgrade).

GSG StudioView Software

GPS/GNSS Test Scenario Builder Software for Windows®

GSG StudioView™ offers an easy way to create, edit and back-up complex scenarios for a Spectracom GSG series multi-channel GPS/GNSS simulator. GSG StudioView allows users to build and manage visual trajectories and supports the import and conversion of trajectory files from other software applications and devices such as Google Earth.
