The CAST-5000 GPS Wavefront Generator produces a single coherent wavefront of GPS RF signals to provide repeatable testing in the laboratory environment or anechoic chamber.
The system generates multiple independent, coherent GPS constellations that reference a single point. With an intercard carrier phase error of less than one centimeter, the CAST-5000 is extremely accurate.
The CAST-5000 is the only Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA) tester that enables a full end-to-end test of the antenna system. The CRPA antenna, antenna electronics and the GPS receiver can be tested as a unit with or without radiating signals.
