Averna Launches Software Toolkits for Advanced Satellite Navigation Applications

Averna has released real-time GNSS simulation and SATCOM signal generator toolkits for the RP-6500 RF Record and Playback platform. The new offerings make the RP-6500 an all-in-one solution to support advanced satellite navigation applications. The RP-6500 platform can record and playback up to 500 MHz of RF spectrum from 9 kHz to 6 GHz, as well as simulate all common GNSS signals (BeiDou, Galileo, GLONASS, GPS, and QZSS). The system can also generate Satellite communications signals (DVB-S and DVB-S2).

The robust system fits into a car trunk for driving/recording applications, and syncs with both a GPS and Averna’s DriveView software, for synchronized location and video capture that is time-aligned with your data. It comes preloaded with RF Studio, powerful RF record/playback software for capturing real-world RF spectrum, including GNSS, radio, video & location data. A state-of-the-art workflow tool, the RP-6500 Series lets you quickly set up your recordings, add contextual data, visualize weak signals, and analyze your collected RF environments to validate and fine-tune your designs and products.
