Opening New Doors for Research

Traditionally, it has been extremely difficult for research and learning institutions to own and use test and simulation tools for Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT). This was primarily due to the extremely high cost and proprietary based systems. Orolia is changing the game by offering the powerful Skydel Simulation Engine to the industry through a dedicated partnership program for qualified organizations. This includes a permanent Skydel Simulation Engine license with all frequencies and constellations as well as temporary student licenses.

Skydel Simulation is an innovative and modern approach that leverages software, advanced graphics cards (GPUs) and Software Defined Radios (SDRs). You’ll have the ability to build your own custom signals and connect to other systems and devices (i.e. Sensors, IMUs…) through our open source plug-in capabilities. Lastly, it includes the ability to generate and test the vulnerability of GNSS/GPS with integrated interference, jamming and spoofing capabilities. Because Skydel leverages COTS hardware (GPU, NIC, SDR), it stands alone as the only GNSS Simulation Solution in the world that can run independently of Orolia hardware.


Beyond the innovative Skydel Simulation Engine, our online forum and Github repository are a community that will be there to help support your program’s research, while connecting you to established test engineers around the globe using Skydel to build the future of GPS and GNSS applications.

Skydel Onboarding


Osmania University

Orolia’s Academic Partnership Program Introduces Skydel to Osmania University to Drive GNSS Education and Research Initiatives in India.

Osmania University, located in the city of Hyderabad (population 10+ million), is the first institution of higher learning in India to join Orolia’s Academic Partnership Program (OAPP). Since 2021, researchers and students have been fully leveraging the power of the Skydel global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) simulation engine to advance their research projects.
