U-blox and Rohde & Schwarz have simulated the European Galileo satellite positioning system that is soon-to-be-deployed. The test was carried out with an R&S SMBV100A vector signal generator and its GNSS simulation options. It verified the U-blox proof-of-concept and the compatibility of U-blox receiver technology with the Galileo transmission protocol.

The Galileo satellite system is the EU's answer to the US NAVSTAR GPS satellite positioning system. It will provide a positioning system upon which European nations can rely, independent of foreign-based satellite navigation systems.

The cooperation with R&S is also being extended to the Russian GLONASS satellite system which is targeted to be fully operational with 24 satellites in 2012.
