Creating a Script-Based Scenario - SatGen v4

A script-based scenario is useful when you have specific parameters that are required in your scenario. You can easily enter the relevant parameters (such as speed, heading, time of travel, etc.) in the script window. The script will plot the route on the map for you as you go. 

Use the following steps to create your script-based scenario:

Getting Started 
  1. Make sure that you are connected to the Internet.
  2. Connect the security dongle to your computer.  Wait for the dongle to activate and the light on it to become red. 
  3. Open the SatGen 4 software.
Setting the Start Position 
  1. Select Script mode on the toolbar.
  2. Click on the Set Start Position button to set the first waypoint marker.
  3. Navigate to your start location by entering coordinates, an address or a place name in the Location Search bar.
  4. Left-click on the map  in the location where you wish to start the trajectory.
Script Commands 

When you have set the starting position and adjusted the settings, you can add commands to the script to edit the trajectory. 

  1. Type in your parameters commands or select from the available Example trajectories in the Examples tab in the Route options.
    You can also use the IntelliPrompt feature to see available commands that you can add to your script to complete your scenario. 
  2. The map will update as you enter your parameters in the script. 
  1. Once you are satisfied with your customized scenario, click on the Create tab to specify the output options for your scenario.
  2. Set the format to correspond with the LabSat unit you want to use to replay the scenario.
  3. Choose a file save location and file name.
  4. You can also select available constellations and frequencies in the scenario, as well as the scenario quantisation and hardware attenuation.
  5. When you are happy with the configuration of the output format, click the Create file button to make SatGen generate the GNSS scenario. If you need to create multiple scenarios and simulations, we recommend that you use the queue. Click on the Add to queue button to make SatGen send the file to the generation queue but pause the generation until you are finished configuring all your scenarios.


The file will be created and saved in the relevant directory.
