The European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA) have selected Orolia to provide the core Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) simulation engine for the Galileo Second Generation (G2G) RF Constellation Simulator (G2G RFCS).
Orolia will provide the core GNSS simulation engine based on its Skydel software technology, within a custom hardware configuration to simulate all Galileo signals including Open Service (OS) and Public Regulated Service (PRS).
The Galileo Second Generation (G2G) initiative includes the preparation of a future generation of Galileo global infrastructure from satellites to ground segments, in order to maintain current services as well as to provide improved performance and Required Navigation Performance (RNP) features.
The primary objective of the G2G RFCS initiative is to design, develop, manufacture, and test an enhanced radio frequency constellation simulator dedicated to Galileo engineering and experiments.
This simulation technology will enable scientists and industries to verify, demonstrate, and validate the future G2G configuration.
“With this project, Orolia demonstrates the Skydel platform’s exceptional flexibility to meet critical application requirements and serve as the core engine to design the next generation of GNSS signals. We are very proud to work with ESA, GMV and Tecnobit to help develop the next generation European Galileo constellation,” said Orolia CEO Jean-Yves Courtois.
