2014 RF and Communications Finalist
Building a Satellite Navigation Test Platform Using the NI Vector Signal Transceiver
Author: David Bourdier, Yohann Gouttefroy, Mark Dury, and Marc Pollina, M3 Systems
Challenge: Entering the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) automated test market with a high-performance, flexible, and aggressively priced solution that is also scalable and can address growing features in terms of constellations, frequencies, and positioning augmentation systems.
Solution: Combining the NI PXIe-5644R vector signal transceiver (VST) FPGA and RF capabilities, the NI PXIe-8135 controller’s CPU power, and NI LabVIEW system design software to embed the M3 Systems software radio solution, STELLA-NGC, which is a fully configurable GNSS simulator with astonishing features to manage multiconstellations and multifrequency approaches.
