Spirent was selected for this year’s award to recognize its leading role in the evolution of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) since 1985, and joins the European Space Agency, the UK National Air Traffic Services (NATS), the Russian GLONASS system, and others who have previously received the award.
 
Peter Chapman-Andrews, Director of the Royal Institute of Navigation, commented: “Spirent is a well-known and well-respected leader in PNT testing. This wholly-deserved award is the Institute’s way of recognising Spirent’s significant contribution over many years towards helping the world evaluate and improve performance of navigation and timing receivers, systems, and applications.”
 
“We are extremely honored to have been recognized by the Institute in this way,” said Martin Foulger, general manager of Spirent’s Positioning Technology Unit. “Spirent has been at the forefront of GPS and other GNSS development for 30 years, so to join the other winners of this award is a great acknowledgement of the technical innovation and commercial success driven by the Spirent team in Paignton.”@font-face {
