NAVigation Simulation

We move the world around your System Under Test

To this end, we apply RF antenna signals to the UUT and simultaneously pretend that it is part of a flying airplane.
We receive the simulation data from the flight simulation model that is centrally operated, monitored, and parameterized by ADS2/ALYSA. This model can be provided by any flight simulator software (e.g. FlightGear), or it can be the customer’s own model. The only condition is that it has to provide a defined and accessible data interface.

By using ADS2/ALYSA as middleware, any process variables are transparently available and can be complemented or changed at any time. ADS2/ALYSA provides the necessary performance as well as all mechanisms for data monitoring, error injection, and control (Link auf ADS2/ALYSA).

TechSAT provides every NAV simulator system independently. All simulator systems ared based on the ADS2/ALYSA middleware and can therefore be operated simultaneously to represent a complete navigation environment:

Use Cases
  • Equipment testing
  • Integration testing
  • Flight simulation
Benefits
  • Real environment scenario simulation
  • Dynamic alignment of “static” environment depending on flight scenario
  • Scalability
  • No emission of RF signals (saving of screened test means)
Key Features
  • Dynamic simulation of navigation tracking station dependent on aircraft flight status
  • Simulated equipment embedding in aircraft
  • Signal provision on antenna signal level
  • Full access to all process variables
  • Adding and changing of map data
  • Adding and changing of airports
