Description We present a tool that generates automata for LTL(X,F,G,U) where U does not occur in any G-formula (but F still can). The tool generates deterministic generalized Rabin automata (DGRA) significantly smaller than deterministic Rabin automata (DRA) generated by state-of-the-art tools. For complex properties such as fairness constraints, the difference is in orders of magnitude. DGRA have been recently shown to be as useful in probabilistic model checking as DRA, hence the difference in size directly translates to a speed up of the model checking procedures.
