Abstract: GMV’s gmvBRAVE stands for Brief Report for Analysis, Validation and Engineering platform. It is a solution that streamlines engineering and analysis tasks in the development and operation of SBAS systems. Whether these systems are already in operation or if they are still in development, gmvBRAVE aims to reduce the time cost and increase efficiency in repetitive tasks. gmvBRAVE allows testing different SBAS algorithms for the computation of positioning corrections and integrity information in real or simulated scenarios, monitoring and analyzing system performances and, ultimately, assessing the reliability of an SBAS system in a quick way and with little effort. Its modular design makes it an agile and intuitive platform, both for system developers and less technical users. Thus, it can be easily adapted to all types of needs requested by users. For the current study, gmvBRAVE has been integrated within the developing infrastructure of the Australia and New Zealand DFMC SBAS Testbed. Mainly, gmvBRAVE has been employed as engineering and analysis platform to evaluate the performances of the Australia and New Zealand SBAS Testbed under different circumstances. On the one hand, this will show the Testbed performances, and on the other, it will prove gmvBRAVE’s capabilities and added value. As a whole, all the outcomes will show the potential benefits of using gmvBRAVE as analysis and validation tool in the multiple steps of an SBAS system development and operation.
