Propsim Channel Emulation Aerospace Testing

The PROPSIM Channel Emulation Solution enables aerospace, satellite and airborne radio system performance validation under uncompromised, coherent real-world complex 3D propagation channels.

Today’s space applications introduce new advanced technologies including wider signal bandwidths, higher frequencies and beamforming. To address associated complexities, Keysight was first to market with channel emulation solution that offers the widest signal bandwidth and highest number of fading channels to test performance of 5G NTN aerospace and terrestrial links in single box.

Performance validation of high velocity aerospace environment requires a test environment that emulates high Doppler frequencies and support long delays, both common in satellite links. Users are able to create test scenarios using PROPSIM-based tools or import scenarios from third-party tools using PROPSIM’s open file format.

The solution allows users to create high-velocity test environments that meet requirements for the highest levels of Doppler. By using a file-based emulation of test scenarios, Keysight’s PROPSIM Channel Emulation Solution assures accurate, realistic and repeatable test conditions for wireless aerospace, telemetry, satellite and high mobility broadband communications applications.

By combining the PROPSIM channel emulator with Keysight E7770A Common Interface Unit and Keysight’s remote radio head (M1740A mmWave Transceiver for 5G), the solution extends to also address frequencies in 6-12GHz and mmWave 24/28/37/44GHz bands.
