GPS Testing for Research & Development Applications

How do you ensure maximum optimization and control within an R&D testing environment?

GNSS receiver development and optimization is a complex process. Control over a repeatable test environment is key for meaningful, effective and efficient GNSS research and development. A GNSS signal simulator provides ultimate flexibility and repeatability, shortening development cycles significantly. In addition, lab-based testing allows new and future GNSS (eg. Galileo, QZSS, Compass) signals to be tested in advance of system deployments.

The use of an RF simulator for performance testing of GPS receiver technology provides a controlled, repeatable test environment. The simulated "truth" data is available to compare with measured receiver performance, facilitating efficient and focused R&D.

Spirent Solves Your Critical Test Challenges.

Spirent simulators allow for testing of all current and modernized GPS signals at L1, L2 and L5 frequencies as well as Space Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) such as WAAS, EGNOS and MSAS. GLONASS and Galileo constellation simulators are also available. A wide range of product configurations are available to support activities from core GPS technology design through integration, production and field-testing.

Spirent also supports classified testing, differential GPS, orbit and attitude determination, CRPA testing, interference signal simulation, integrated system testing with Inertial Navigation System (INS) or Dead Reckoning (DR) simulation, Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS) testing and multi-GNSS system testing. Whatever your application, Spirent has the test solution to meet your needs.
