02 - SatGen System operation

The SatGen v3 GUI is shown below. The GUI will load default values upon start-up. There are two main stages of scenario production using SatGen. The first stage is to define the trajectory of the test, and the second is to convert this trajectory into a scenario file which can be replayed on LabSat. The software is designed to be as simple to use as possible and will need the PC that the software is installed on to be connected to the internet. This will allow for the Google maps and almanac details to be downloaded automatically.
 

The SatGen v3 main screen is divided into three sections. The left hand side has the main trajectory selection type control buttons. The middle section has the trajectory input section and the third right hand section has the Scenario Details and Scenario Settings sections.
 

Security dongle

SatGen v3 software is available as a demonstration or operational product. The SatGen v3 demonstration version is readily available and will work as normal for demonstration and familiarisation purposes. The demonstration software is exactly the same as the operational software but without the security dongle inserted. The software will function as normal with the exception that it will only create a LabSat scenario of only 120 seconds duration. This is to allow for a demonstration scenario to be created but not of sufficient duration to be of any use as a device testing file. Operational software will create LabSat scenarios of any duration required.
 

The dongle is available in five different output variants:

The software will recognise the USB dongle and display the following status:

  • SatGen (Version Number) - No dongle detected – Demo version limited to 120 seconds
  • SatGen (Version Number) – Single, Dual or Triple constellation 
  • SatGen (Version Number) – xxxxx constellation – Real Time
  • SatGen (Version Number) – Wideband
     

The software dongle once inserted into the USB port will install automatically and will indicate that that it is installed correctly by displaying a red light.

For normal operation please ensure that the Security Dongle is installed prior to launching the SatGen software and is recognised by the PC. Please ensure your PC is connected to the internet when installing the dongle for the first time. This will allow for the automatic download of the relevant drivers for your security dongle.
