Spirent Federal Supports New BFEA Wave Forms for Major U.S. Military Agencies

Sponsored by Businesswire

Spirent Federal Systems, the nation’s leader in global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) testing solutions, announced the delivery of new capabilities of a GNSS simulator to support testing of a seven element Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA) system. The Spirent simulator features a wide range of programmable interference sources, which include the capability to generate Blue Force Electronic Attack (BFEA) wave forms, allowing agencies to create scenarios to test Military GPS User Equipment (MGUE) TRD threshold and objective requirements.

The flexible custom wave form capabilities create scenarios with multiple interferers. As threat models are updated the Spirent GNSS simulators have the flexibility to change and create new scenarios. These capabilities supplement an already robust MNSA M-Code test environment for MGUE developers and integrators alike.

“It’s important that our customers can easily utilize application-critical wave forms during testing,” said Roger Hart, Director of Engineering. “The enhanced programmability envelops current requirements and anticipates future interference testing needs.”
