|Abstract:||This article presents an update of our Real-Time Real-World Testbed for new GNSS Signals. It includes the experience gained in setting up an airborne pseudolite (UAVlite) in order to perform an analysis of the code and phase ranging performance as well as the testing of navigation message authentication schemes. UAVlites transmit GNSS like signals free from any local transmitter multipath (in contrast to ground-based transmitters). Furthermore, software-defined radio allows easy broadcast of new navigation signals, which can be tested in real environments. In this first step, the key technology elements are used with one UAVlite, two ground stations and a CBOC signal. Decimeter code range accuracy and Millimeter phase range accuracy have been demonstrated. Also, the performance of a Galileo OS Navigation Message Authentication (NMA) implementation was analyzed.|
