Spirent Federal Systems announced that it has been selected by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for testing GNSS for lunar exploration. NASA is exploring the viability and enhancement of GPS and GNSS signals in the Space Service Volume (SSV) and beyond to support operational U.S. missions and civil space systems. Spirent GNSS will support testing of the GNSS receivers intended to be deployed in the upcoming lunar exploration.
Spirent’s Record & Playback System, the GSS6450, has been used in space-based GNSS applications. “For over two decades NASA and other space users have selected us to provide test and development solutions for missions ranging from short suborbital flights to weeks-long orbits beyond geosynchronous altitudes,” said Ellen Hall, President.
Spirent Federal Systems, a provider of GPS and GNSS test equipment, is a wholly owned subsidiary and U.S. proxy company of Spirent Communications, marketing and selling Spirent Communications’ products in North America.
