DLR is the national aeronautics and space research center of the Federal Republic of Germany. Its Institute of Communications and Navigation develops and investigates new systems and methods for radio transmission and positioning. These are widely used in broadcasting multimedia contents as well as for internet connection of airplanes and remote areas. In satellite navigation the Institute puts emphasis on the verification, support and evolution of the European Satellite Navigation System Galileo. Using latest optical technologies for synchronization, communications and ranging the institutes develops the system KEPLER – a novel concept of satellite navigation systems – and supports Galileo 2G and LEO PNTdevelopment. Besides system development the institute is active in developing technologies for safety-critical applications, which require a reliable and robust positioning and/or timing information, and for positioning in urban canyons, indoors and other challenging environments. The institute operates several verification and analysis facilities and is engaged in relevant standardization and expert groups e.g. at EC, ESA, ICAO, RTCA, EUROCAE, IALA, IMO etc. Visit our webpage at www.dlr.de/kn/en for learning more about our missions, work and career opportunities.
The Galileo Competence Center supports Europe in the provision of the best possible navigation technology for its citizens. We are working on this jointly with DLR’s scientific institutes and facilities as well as other partners from research and industry.
A prime objective is the realization of shared ideas and projects for the development and assembly of new technologies, and concepts for later possible use, or the marketing of these by industry. Our consolidated knowledge of the overall system provides us the opportunity to act both as an intermediary and a consultant to the various stakeholders.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, Germany, conducts world-class research on microelectronic and IT system solutions. Research at Fraunhofer IIS revolves around “Audio and Media Technologies” and “Cognitive Sensor Technologies”. In the context of cognitive technologies the IIS experts research technologies for sensor technology, data transmission technology, data analysis methods and the exploitation of data as part of data-driven services and their accompanying business models. This adds a cognitive component to the function of the conventional “smart” sensor. The results of this research have been applied in the areas of connected mobility, communication and for the Internet of Things, digitalization of human sensing, product and material monitoring, and business analytics in supply chains.
IFEN GmbH, founded 1998, is a leading provider of GNSS navigation products and services.
IFEN is offering for 15 years a full product portfolio for GNSS ‘Test & Measurement’ (GNSS NCS NOVA RFsimulators, SRX test receivers) as well as ‘Research & Development’ (SX3 software receiver, GSPF simulation, data processing and analysis tool).
In addition IFEN is offering for 25 years a broad service portfolio including development and operation of customer driven test beds (Galileo 2G SIS Test Bed), facilities (Galileo UERE Monitoring facility UMF) andperformance test benches (for EGNOS system integrity), but also specific algorithms and software development for GNSS positioning and integrity.
IFEN’s new leading edge product ‘NCS NOVA+’, is setting new benchmarks for GNSS RF simulators in capability, scalability, flexibility and performance, being designed to provide a sophisticated test solution to thedifferent users for their specific markets.
IFEN has outstanding satellite navigation know-how since 25 years.
Lange-Electronic GmbH, founded in 1977, is located west of Munich. We develop and produce our own timing systems and represent some highly specialized companies in German-speaking countries: Spirent (GNSS simulation, Vertex Channel Emulators), OHB Digital Solutions (GNSS interference detection), Masterclock (precise NTP / PTP servers, digital and analog clocks), Elproma (NTP / PTP servers) and PikTime (time transfer systems).
Orolia, now part of Safran Electronics & Defense, is the world leader in resilient positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) solutions that improve the reliability, performance and safety of critical, remote or high-risk operations, even in GNSS-denied environments. Orolia provides virtually fail-safe GPS/GNSS and PNT solutions for military and commercial applications worldwide. www.orolia.com
CONSTELLATOR™ GNSS/LEO PNT Simulator. Advanced, scalable, cost-effective, and high-fidelity SDR software-based platform supporting multi-constellation signals & frequencies (L&C LEO Bands, open, restricted, and customs), hundreds of signals at 1kHz iteration rate at zero effective latency, advanced space models (Earth gravity, drag, 3D ionospheric models, side lobes, etc.), extensive high dynamics, hardware-ready for future constellations, signals, and codes.
Multiple upgradable hardware and software configurations are available. Extensively used in Aeronautics, Space, Defense & Transportation Markets, Constellator answers complex requirements such as:
LEO PNT CONSTELLATIONS: XONA in L & C Bands (combined with other GNSS constellations). As a caveat, a Syntony’s XONA L&C receiver is also available on Demand!
Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) mode with zero effective latency and 1000-Hz update rate
CRPA: Synchro-phase SDR by design, Advanced Jamming & Spoofing, thousands of signals, 4 to 16 elements.
Capability to generate “Restricted Signals” through a dedicated interface, called PRN-Link
ECHO™ Recorder & Replayer Advanced and Powerful High-Fidelity Record & Replay devices characterizing group-delay, scintillation, jamming & spoofing interferences, from Space to Ground market segments, including :
3 RF channels of 200MHz bandwidth each (for the whole set of GNSS signals from all constellations)
16-bit resolution (I&Q)
Up to 1.6 GB/s write/read speed
From seven to more than 1,000 hours of record/replay capabilities depending on the configuration
ECHO™ Recorder & Replayer allows full 16 bits of I/Q recording at 200MHz for three channels, simultaneously. As such, it provides the highest achievable record/replay fidelity.
ECHO-R can also record complex and very long realistic scenarios from a simulator.
ECHO-P can replay them with very high fidelity for long-run or production tests.
