09/22/2020 - Spirent Federal Validates M-Code Simulator


Pleasant Grove, UT, September 22, 2020 – Spirent Federal Systems, the nation's leading provider of GPS and GNSS simulators, announced today the successful validation of SimMNSA, Spirent Federal's M-Code simulator with testing capabilities that fully support MNSA-encrypted signals. This testing was performed in collaboration with the US Air Force.

Until recently, such sensitive testing required Government approved data sets which were limiting in terms of location, date, time and other critical testing variables. Adhering to government guidance, Spirent Federal has demonstrated the ability to meet the requirements encompassed within these data sets without the need for the data sets themselves. Spirent Federal can supply the data set equivalent scenarios that will greatly accelerate the receiver evaluation process.

"Although we received security approval from the government in 2018 to deliver the system to our customers, we wanted government validation of our simulator's performance. The US Air Force provided guidance on the testing that is necessary to validate the performance. We are proud to say that testing was successful for all stated criteria." said Roger Hart, Director of Engineering.
