If you are selling, testing or developing products incorporating satellite navigation chipsets, then you’ll find LabSat 3 makes your job easier, quicker and more cost effective.

  • Available for GPS L1, GLONASS L1,
  • Galileo E1, BeiDou B1, QZSS and SBAS
  • Small, rugged, anodised aluminium construction
  • Fully standalone
  • Compact, lightweight and portable
  • Simple to use one touch recording
  • Single, dual or triple constellation
  • Battery life up to 2 hours

LabSat 3 records and replays real world data, allowing realistic and repeatable testing to be carried out under controlled conditions. Signal artefacts including multipath, ionospheric effects and signal dropouts are reproduced and there are no limits to the number of satellites used in the test. Conventional testing usually requires driving the same route multiple times, where conditions vary and satellite constellations change between tests.

This can make it very challenging to reproduce and find software errors or reception issues with the device under test. Using LabSat 3 saves many hours of work, allowing you to quickly pinpoint errors and verify ‘corner cases’ without leaving the test bench. A very useful feature is the ability to record and replay additional streams of data using the high speed digital port(s) on LabSat3. In this way, CAN bus data, RS232 signals or digital event triggers can be fully synchronised during playback, bringing a whole new level of realism to your bench simulations.LABSAT 3 with GPS


LabSat 3 receives the signal from a standard satellite antenna, but instead of processing each of the received signals to calculate a position fix, LabSat 3 digitises and stores the original satellite signals at a very high bandwidth onto a removable SD card or USB disk. The RF output of the LabSat 3 is then connected to the antenna input of the device under test and the recorded data is replayed back as an RF signal. The device under test will then start to track the satellites as though it was travelling along the same path taken by the LabSat 3 during the original recording.

One touch record/replay makes LabSat 3 extremely simple to operate. With its rugged construction, built in battery and clear display, it is very easy to use the LabSat 3 in the same environment as your product will experience in everyday use, with little or no training. A free library of pre-recorded and simulated files from around the world is included to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

Each LabSat channel can be tuned to one of three user selectable frequencies:

  • 1575.420 MHz – GPS+Galileo+SBAS+QZSS
  • 1602.000 MHz – Glonass
  • 1561.098 MHz – Beidou


LabSat 3 comes in six versions. All replay & record versions also come with a SatGen v3 option.

All units types can be factory upgraded to any other version.


You can log a variety of other information such as CAN, serial or digital data alongside the satellite signals. When the file is replayed, the embedded data is reproduced at the same time, synchronized to within 60nS. You can also embed a 1PPS signal using the internal GPS receiver.LabSat3-interfaces


If you want to create your own custom test scenario using artificial signals, SatGen software allows you to quickly draw a route using Google maps, and then automatically creates an RF file which can then be transferred to an SD card and replayed on a LabSat 3. Multiple satellites and multiple constellations can be simulated, and the user can also have precise control over velocity, heading and height profiles. SatGenv2-Screen
