Spirent Communications plc this week announced its test solutions have been used to improve maritime safety, and this development came about after much collaborative work designed to ensure that GNSS receivers are performing as needed, especially for rescue operations at sea.
Working with the Radio Technical Committee for Maritime Services (RTCM), Spirent has created test scenarios that simulate realistic satellite reception conditions at sea so that GPS distress beacon performance can be improved, allowing users to be rescued faster by search and rescue organizations.By Inside GNSS
In effort to improve safety, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) has officially launched the Galileo and EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service) test campaign for eCall devices, which allows eCall device manufacturers to pre-test Galileo and EGNOS compatibility prior to type approval.By Inside GNSS
