Safran to provide GNSS Simulation Solutions for Xona Space System’s LEO Constellation and Navigation Signals

Our Bureau - : Apr 5, 2023 - : 1:21 am

Orolia, a Safran Electronics & Defense company, is partnering with Xona Space Systems to develop support for Xona’s Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) constellation and navigation signals in its Skydel-powered simulation and testing products.

Xona is developing PULSAR – a high-performance positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) service enabled by a commercial constellation of dedicated LEO satellites.

Xona’s PULSAR service will advance capabilities in global PNT security, resilience, and accuracy by augmenting existing GNSS while also operating as an independent PNT constellation. Xona’s high-power signals utilize modern signal structures and security techniques, adding resilience in challenging RF environments.

Skydel powers Safran’s portfolio of advanced GNSS simulators like the GSG-8.

“Our Skydel GNSS simulation engine will provide support for Xona’s PULSAR signals and satellite constellation to offer OEMs, developers, and integrators a unique tool that enables early testing and validation of Xona’s LEO PNT signal performance,” said Pierre-Marie Le Véel, GNSS Products Director with Safran.

“Offering a new generation of satellite navigation and timing services allows receiver manufacturers to develop entirely new capabilities for end users,” said Brian Manning, CEO of Xona Space Systems. “Xona’s mission is to enable modern technologies to operate safely in any environment, anywhere on Earth. Having market-proven simulation solutions are critical to support the development of these new applications and technologies, which is why we are excited to be working with Safran to provide next-generation GNSS simulation tools to our partners and customers.”
