Sophisticated and highly comprehensive testing is as important as ever when it comes to developing positioning, navigation and timing systems for military, space, research and other high-precision applications.
That’s why officials from Spirent Federal Systems delivered an Exhibitor Demonstration on the company’s GSS9000 Platform Update on Thursday, Sept. 27, at ION GNSS+ in Miami. The GSS9000 GPS/GNSS simulator is a versatile GNSS/GPS test solution, designed to deliver optimal performance, flexibility and capability.
Mark Holbrow, Spirent senior director research and development, told ION GNSS+ attendees that “comprehensive testing is as relevant as it’s ever been,” noting that fellow speakers at the conference also stressed the need to ensure equipment remains reliable in difficult situations.
Holbrow said the company’s vast experience and veteran engineers in their southern England facility have helped Spirent consistently update and enhance its technology to ensure the critical reliability. Attendees were encouraged to visit the Spirent booth at the conference to see how the co-simulation environment (SimCAV and Sim3D) works.
Additionally, the company announced a partnership with Fraunhofer lIS and LZE GmbH that will ensure continuity of supply of Spirent’s leading Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS) Radio Frequency Constellation Simulator (RFCS) product extension after the UK leaves the European Union.
Spirent’s Lead Product Manager Stuart Smith also spoke during the Exhibitor Demonstration and showcased the GSS9000 GPS/GNSS simulator’s “high-level capabilities.” Smith also demonstrated how test parameters can be easily edited to perform for custom scenarios.
