Spirent Test Solutions Help to Improve Maritime Safety

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.

Comments on Galileo Waiver Praise Benefits, Flag Future Complications

The Federal Communications Commission is being asked to choose between the immediate benefits of officially improving U.S. satellite navigation receivers and the possibility that, in doing so, it may raise interference levels in a neighboring band or make it harder to develop alternative uses for those adjacent frequencies.

Precisely speaking, the agency is deciding whether to waive a licensing requirement for equipment utilizing Galileo signals for non-federal uses — effectively authorizing use of the European satellite navigation system in the United States.
