IFEN Starts Shipping of the NavX®?NCS Essential

The New GNSS Testing 'Standard' for Consumer and Automotive Navigation Equipment

(PresseBox) (Poing, Germany, ) IFEN GmbH starts shipping of the brand new NavX®?NCS Essential, a multi?constellation and single?frequency GNSS RF navigation constellation simulator mainly targeting consumer and automotive applications, to first customers.

The NavX®?NCS Essential has been designed to fully meet the requirements of single?frequency, multi?constellation GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, QZSS, SBAS and beyond) for research and development, system integration and production testing for consumer and automotive applications using the L1 / G1 / E1 frequencies.

The NavX®?NCS Essential, with its powerful executive software, is the leader in GPS, A?GPS, LBS and vehicle navigation testing, providing unique capabilities, like the emulation of various vehicle motion sensors for today's multi?sensor vehicle navigation systems. Integration with Google Earth(TM) (for accurate trajectory visualisation), superior high dynamic range (for best?inclass indoor and urban canyon simulation) and A?GPS (A?GNSS) performance test case support come as standard.

With the introduction of the BLACK JACK simulation engine at the heart of the NavX®?NCS Essential, it is for the first time possible to assign to one signal generation module not only one type of GNSS constellation, but the full range of all available GNSS systems, independent of the modulation type.

Starting from 13 up to 42 simultaneous signal channels, the NavX®?NCS Essential is prepared for today's GPS testing, but also for upcoming next generation GNSS systems. This enables a new level of GNSS constellation configuration, which did not exist before, providing the user with full flexibility and outstanding benefit.

"The shipment of our brand new NavX®?NCS Essential to first customers represents another milestone for our NavX®?NCS GNSS RF simulator product line", explains Dr. Günter Heinrichs, Head of Customer Applications. "This shows clearly once again which confidence the customers have in the quality of our NavX®?NCS GNSS RF simulator products."

The NavX®?NCS Essential GNSS RF simulator has been developed in cooperation with WORK Microwave GmbH, Germany. Due to its flexibility, scalability and extendability, the NavX®?NCS Essential is a 'future?proofinvestment' for the coming multi?GNSS era!
