The Skydel Simulation Engine

Test a wide range of applications with advanced GNSS Simulators and helpful tools that generate basic scenarios all the way to complex threat environments, leveraging the power and scalability of the Skydel Simulation Engine. Skydel powers each of Orolia Defense & Security's advanced software-defined simulators including BroadSim, BroadSim Anechoic and BroadSim Wavefront.

Multiple Trajectories

The software-defined nature of Skydel enables multiple instances of the GNSS simulator to run on the same or multiple computers. This brings research and test labs interesting possibilities to create advanced simulation setups.

Possible applications of multi-instance include the simulation of:

  • Differential GNSS, such as Real-Time Kinematics (RTK), where SDX instances are used to simulate both Rover and Base

  • Spoofing, to test –and help mitigate– its effects on a GNSS receiver

  • Multi-antenna vehicles, for example in the case of space launch vehicles and other rockets

  • Attitude measurement using GNSS signals

  • Simple or complex arrays of GNSS receivers

  • Directional/Adaptative Antennas, such as Controlled Reception Pattern Antennas (CRPA)

When synchronizing simulators, parameters such as radio and antenna settings, vehicle trajectories or interference transmitters are shared between all instances. SDX provides a fine level of control on how each instances connect to each other to perform the synchronization.
