Beacon Simulator BG-105

BG-105 Beacon Simulator General View

General description

Beacon Generator BG-105 is high-precision simulator of Cospas-Sarsat emergency beacon messages (EPIRB, ELT, PLB operating in 406MHz frequency range). BG-105 allows to simulate up to five simultaneously operating beacons with messages overlay in time. The generator is intended to operate under PC control to provide the customization of main parameters of each simulated beacon on every of five channels by means of terminal program.

A critical part of the International Cospas-Sarsat system is the capability to run tests on the system. A beacon simulator is a critical part of the testing capability. It provides the capability:
- to ensure that the system is operating properly,
- to measure certain parameters of the system such as capacity,
- to validate the installation and operation of new LUTS and MCC’s,
- to test new technology,
- to support POES and GOES spacecraft post launch tests, and
- to support Cospas-Sarsat spacecraft, LUT and MCC commissioning tests.

The BG-105 is a custom-made test instrument. Its purpose is to simulate the simultaneous activation of multiple distress beacons. The BG-105 contains five independent frequency generators, each capable of producing either a stream of time-multiplexed signal pulses from one or more beacons or a continuous wave output. The generators provide the capability to produce up to five concurrent beacon transmissions. The net effect is the production of multiple beacon signals with possible overlaps in both time and frequency. The sum of the outputs from the generators can be amplified by a high-powered RF transmitter before delivery to the appropriate antenna. The BG-105 control software provides the capability for configuring simulated beacon signals and complex test scenarios.
