CRPA and Attitude Determination Receiver Testing
The CAST-5000, a Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA) tester, is known for its high accuracy and precision in controlled-reception-pattern antenna and attitude determination receiver testing. Producing one clear GPS RF signal wavefront, this GPS wavefront generator for CRPA and attitude determination receiver testing creates four independent simulations that meet in a single point. It boasts a < 1cm intercard carrier phase error.
To date, this GPS wavefront simulator is the only CRPA tester that allows full testing of the antenna system, from start to finish. The CRPA antenna, electronics, and the receiver can be tested simultaneously even without the signals.
