LabSat announced the launch of the new LabSat 3 Wideband, which can record multiple signals from different constellations, simultaneously, and the company also is developing an updated version of its SatGen software.
The LabSat 3 Wideband can record GPS L1, L2 and L5 at the same time as GLONASS G1 and G2, and BeiDou B1 and B2. The company describes the lightweight unit as its most powerful to date, yet the small, easy-to-use LabSat 3 Wideband retains the one-touch recording and playback of files.
