Galileo System July 2019 Outage - LabSat Recorded Event Files

Posted in 新闻

The Galileo Global Navigation Satellite System has experienced a 6-day signal outage. This occurred from approximately Thursday 11th July at 14.45 hrs (UTC) when GPS World reported poorer signal quality. The system was restored on Tuesday 16th July at 19.00 hrs (UTC). Galileo NAGU of July 18th at 20.52 hrs (UTC) reports SERVICE RESTORED (POTENTIAL INSTABILITY).

At LabSat we are continually recording GNSS signals. We have made freely available, three one hour long files from this outage for download from the LabSat website. These files are in the LabSat 3 (.ls3) format and will need converting to LabSat 3 Wideband format if required.

The full data set is available from on Wednesday 10th July at 14.20 hrs UTC to Tuesday 16th July at 19.07 hrs (UTC). This data set of 143 files in one-hour recorded files is about 4.2 TB of data and can only be transferred on a SSD. This will be a chargeable item for the media used. Please contact for further details.

New version of SatGen v3

Posted in 新闻

An updated version of SatGen v3 is now available to download. Along with a number of optimisations and fixes, this is a major update to the capabilities of the software as it now allows for the simulation of new satellite signals such as L2, L2C, and L5 – making the use of SatGen with the LabSat 3 Wideband significantly more powerful.

This latest version also allows for the creation of complex (multi-frequency, multi-constellation) scenarios, enabling development and test of dual frequency GNSS receivers in a highly dependable and repeatable manner.

With L2C likely to be fully operational within the next two to three years once twenty-four satellites are transmitting the signal (currently at nineteen), the emergence of dual frequency devices is set to rapidly accelerate. Taking advantage of the robust simulation capacity of LabSat 3 Wideband hardware in conjunction with SatGen V3 software will give a competitive edge to those manufacturers leading the way in dual frequency design.

SatGen can now be used to create a single scenario containing all the upper and lower L Band signals for GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou, and will take advantage of the LabSat 3 Wideband’s ability to read RF data at up to 80 MB/s.

The new software can be found here, and release notes here.

下次闰秒即将于 2016 年 12 月 31 日加入官方计时。闰秒大约每十八个月发生一次,用于对地自转逐渐减慢进行弥补,所有人在当天和当年的官方时间都会多出一秒,除非是对于 GNSS 装置领域的工程师或产品设计师,否则该变化几乎没有什么严重影响。

您知道您的 GPS 装置和算法在即将来临的闰秒纠正中会有何反应吗?您已准备好迎接 2016 年的闰秒调整吗?这在以前曾给许多人带来麻烦,但却是可轻松避免的...

凭借 LabSat,您可在自己的工作台模拟闰秒纠正,包括将于 2016 年 12 月 31 日 发生的闰秒纠正。瑞思捷已提供相关场景供免费下载。

立刻下载模拟最近即将来临的闰秒事件的 LabSat 3 闰秒场景。

如果您已购买 SatGen 软件,您还可模拟以前的闰秒事件,以测试您装置的稳定性。 最新的 SatGen v3 软件版本 提供发生于 1981 年 7 月 30 日至 2016 年 12 月 31 日之间的闰秒事件。

LabSat 3 Turntable System: A full navigation testing solution

Posted in 新闻

To cover for losses in satellite visibility most OEM navigation systems have a dead reckoning capability. This utilises vehicle wheel speed data and rate of turn information to provide the system with a guide to the vehicle's current location when GPS signals are not available.  

When it comes to testing these systems on the bench however, if the dead reckoning signals are not present the navigation unit will not function correctly. 

To overcome these obstructions we have developed a full navigation testing solution. Watch the video below to see how it works. 

SatGen V3开始支持北斗卫星

Posted in 新闻

SatGen v3作为市场上最经济有效的GNSS模拟器,LabSat更新发布了最新的模拟软件SatGen V3。

SatGen V3是一块功能强大,极易使用的模拟软件,让您通过LabSat机器实现卫星信号的复现-而它现在已经支持中国的北斗系统。



SatGen V3可以从GPS、GLONASS与北斗卫星中选择创建一个、两个或三个同步的卫星信号场景。如果您有一台支持三个星座的LabSat 3,SatGen V3能使得labsat3的功能变得更加强大(除了记录和回放,还可以自定义生成卫星信号)。
