Safran Unites Its Advanced Expertise and Global Activities in PNT Technology Under Expanding Navigation & Timing Business
Navigation & Timing integrates Safran’s positioning, navigation, and timing portfolio beside its high-tech optronics, avionics, electronics, and critical software solutions
Safran Electronics & Defense has consolidated our vast experience in positioning, navigation and timing (PNT)
technology and our comprehensive portfolio of market-leading solutions under one business called Navigation
& Timing. Our activities under Navigation & Timing will aim to deliver the most accurate and secure PNT
solutions for sea, land, air, space and cyber applications around the world.
Advancements in aerospace equipment, defense, autonomous transportation, critical infrastructure, and even
commercial products have become more dependent on precise and uninterrupted signals from Global Navigation
Satellite Systems (GNSS). Safran has leveraged our worldwide knowledge in the domain to create an evolving
ecosystem of resilient Navigation & Timing solutions.
The range of PNT activities covering Navigation & Timing include:
• Inertial measurement technologies and control
• Systems, algorithms, and architectures for interference detection and mitigation
• Sensor fusion and update technologies
• GNSS technologies, including simulation
• Clocks and timing
Agility is essential for meeting specialized requirements across rapidly growing industries. Therefore, Safran offers
customized service packages accompanied by our unparalleled customer experience.
Orolia has developed a new turnkey GNSS Simulator for signal testing and generation, built upon the proven Skydel Simulation Engine platform.
Orolia, the world leader in resilient positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) solutions, has released the GSG-7, the latest Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signal testing solution offered through The Orolia Family of Simulators.
The GSG-7 features a small form factor, an internal RF combiner, high-end performance with a 1000 Hz simulation iteration rate, real-time synchronization, Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) integration, powerful automation, and multi-constellation and multi-frequency simulations.
We are hosting a launch webinar on October 6, 2022 where we will discuss:
What is the GSG-7?
How does it fit into the Orolia Family of Simulators?
We have some big news! We are excited to share we were recently acquired by Safran Electronics & Defense!

NEW Rugged Double-Conversion 1U Rack Mounted Tactical Uninterruptible Power Supply with a Core Capability Of Flexibility Through Modular Design
March 1st, 2022 – Milpower Source announces today a new military grade rugged 1U UPS with internal modular design, which allows it to be easily tailored to almost any customer requirement, while delivering stable, regulated and protected output voltage for the load. Several UPS units can be connected in parallel to support higher loads (up to 6 units for 7.5kW/9kVA total), or in 3-phase configuration (One UPS per phase, up to 3.75kW/4.5kVA total). The UPS utilizes a lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery, which is a safer type of Li-Ion battery. This high-capacity battery allows to achieve a low 1U profile and a low weight. However, if another battery chemistry is desired, other cells may also be used.
This UPS is made of three replaceable modules: • Input module • Output module • Charger/Discharger module If other functions are required (e.g. DC/DC, DC/AC etc.), each of these modules can be replaced with a different module, performing a different function, to accommodate these requirements.

New Multi-Channel Digitizer with Large Open FPGA Ideal for computationally demanding applications.
Today we introduce the ADQ36 – a fourth-generation 12-bit digitizer with a software-configurable two- or four-channel mode of operation that offers 5 or 2.5 GSPS sampling rates respectively. It also features a large user-programmable Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale KU115 field-programmable gate array (FPGA). This makes ADQ36 ideal for computationally demanding multi-channel applications such as Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR).
In addition to the powerful onboard processing capabilities, ADQ36 supports peer-to-peer streaming at rates of 7 Gbyte/s. This is a huge advantage compared to conventional solutions which require data to be copied via the RAM of the host PC. With peer-to-peer, both the CPU and RAM can instead be used for other tasks. The 7 Gbyte/s data stream can then be post-processed in a graphical processing unit (GPU) or recorded to a high-speed solid-state disk (SSD) storage.
The versatile and easy-to-use software Digitizer Studio is included free of charge with the digitizer and offers powerful configuration, control, and display capabilities.

The TE3201/2 are single or dual channel RF amplifiers in a single slot PXIe form factor that can operate from 100kHz to 20GHz, designed for high frequency, and high power signal amplification.
With an ultra-high bandwidth of almost 20GHz and up to +30dBm power into 50 ohms, the TE3201/2 are the ideal complementary amplifiers to any signal source that needs an extended power boost for demanding applications.
Wide bandwidth, 100 kHz to 20GHz
Reverse Polarity protection
Over/under voltage protection
+27dBm typ. output power @ P1dB
Cascade two channels for up to 25dB gain.
The TE3201/2 are designed for PXIe based ATE solutions when more RF/Microwave power is required. Applications are can range from simply giving your PXI system enough power to drive a Local Oscillator, or to providing extra gain/bandwidth in wideband Radar or Threat Emulation systems and giving the amplification you need for wide-band communications systems such as 5G/6G, WiFi-6/7 and UWB.
Remove complexity in your next RF and Microwave PXIe system design, and don’t compromise with external amplification and extra systems cabling complexity. The TE3201/2 are single slot PXIe units, that are compatible with both PXIe and Hybrid Chassis, providing a broad RF/Microwave frequency range and high gains.
We are excited to announce our new High Voltage Scalable LXI Matrix Platform, providing flexibility for up to 300×4 connections. The 50×4 1-pole LXI matrix plug-in modules are available in two variants: The 65-218-101 and 65-218-111 can deliver cold switching to either 400 VDC or 750 VDC (1 kV pulse) with up to 2 A (switching and carrying) and a maximum switching power of 60 W.
