Satellite Simulator


The Satellite simulator provides simulation of a real satellite, housed in a compact enclosure, with low weight, small form factor and minimal power consumption, to allow use in variety of applications, such as in the laboratory, coupled with AYECKA mini satellite chamber, or on a drone. The compact integrated satellite simulator system for tests and measurements of:

  • VSAT RF transceivers and all outdoor terminals.

  • Satcom On the Move SOTM and Satcom on the halt Terminals

  • System calibration

Product Highlights

The Sat Sim is an all outdoor system, and can be used in the following environments:

  • Indoor test bench coupled with AYECKa-RF-Chamber for production and RND tests

  • Indoor signal source within Antenna Compact test range

  • Outdoor installed on building or a mast

  • Outdoor installed on a drone
