Abstract
With the rapid strides in various avionics-related technologies, the need for advanced simulators will increase. Anti-jam receiver development and future improvements in PNT are critically dependent on the availability of advanced simulators. The needs include: flexible, accurate, adaptable, programmable, user-friendly, hardware in the loop operation, precise wavefront simulation, high dynamics, environment and jamming simulation, etc. The simulator for the 21st century will have to precisely accurately represent various environments ranging from urban canyons, nuclear and plasma effects for the complete wavefront. Large update rates and significant processing power are required. A navigation simulator with these features and capable of generating all current and future signals (CA, P, M, L2C, L5, Jammer waveforms,GNSS, etc.) is proposed. CRS has developed a modern wavefront simulator for all GNSS signals.This proposal details adapting the simulator to meet MDA objectives and optimize the system for cost/performance ratio. This system will be capable of multi-satellite, multi-interferer real-time RF output for multiple antennas. It will be capable of integration with a variety of other hardware simulation tools and GPS receivers. The proposed approach will leverage CRS"s current capabilities and expertise and will result, at the end of Phase II, in a fully functioning working system
