A questions came in via e-mail today from a space company that thought should be posted in this forum.
Question: We are looking at the feasibility of using a Skydel GNSS Simulator to test a spacecraft in GTO orbit – I was wondering if you had any information on whether or not this would be possible or has been done before?
Answer from our Engineering Team: Yes, it is not a problem to test satellites in GTO orbit with Skydel. In this case, the receiver trajectory must be injected from a CSV file or sent remotely (HIL) in ECEF or ECI. Our included spacecraft trajectory editor supports propagation orbits calculated from Keplerian parameters.
