CAST Navigation is a leading developer of simulation solutions for advanced tactical navigation applications.
We’ve just launched the company’s Defense Advancement supplier profile, which has been written and built by our team in collaboration with CAST Navigation to showcase its powerful GNSS and inertial simulation and testing tools, which are designed to provide consistent and repeatable results.
Read on to find out about a selection of CAST Navigation’s GNSS and navigation testing technology:
The company’s inertial navigation system (INS) simulators provide realistic high-fidelity inertial data that supports the integration and testing of complex state-of-the-art GNSS-aided INS.
Simulation can be tailored towards a wide range of military vehicle types, including aircraft, UAVs, ground vehicles, surface and subsurface marine platforms, and space-based orbital vehicles.
The versatile systems include an intuitive graphical interface, and allow IMU sensor block output performance characteristics and drift rates to be customized for particular navigation unit or performance modeling parameters. Learn more>
MilDef’s CRPA (controlled reception pattern antenna) simulators are designed for CRPA testing and integration of military phased-array antenna systems, providing precise, coherent, and repeatable GNSS RF signal wavefronts.
A complete set of signals is generated for each antenna element, with GNSS and interference waveforms generated separately and spatially offset to reflect real-life phase differences in signal reception. Learn more>
CAST Navigation’s GNSS simulation systems provide consistent and repeatable signals, with the ability to simultaneously provide up to four different constellations on each antenna element, and are ideal for testing military navigation and positioning devices.
Trajectories can be defined by user-defined profiles with a wide variety of options for vehicle types and constellation parameters, or generated from previously-recorded external data. A wide variety of other parameters can also be tailored to suit specific simulation requirements, including multipath, atmospheric delays, spoofing, interference, antenna gain patterns, and more.

CAST Navigation’s jamming and interference simulation systems support the testing, verification, and integration of both single-element Fixed Reception Pattern Antenna (FRPA) systems as well as multiple-element CRPA-based anti-jamming systems.
Based on proprietary FPGA technology, the systems emulate interference conditions and threats that can occur in both urban and hostile environments.
Users can define multiple interference parameters, including output signal waveform types, output power level, jammer signal source location, speed, heading and motion. Learn more>
