Spirent Federal Unveils Enhanced Flagship Simulator at ION GNSS+ 2019

Sponsored by Businesswire

Spirent Federal Systems, the nation’s leader in global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) test solutions, will unveil its enhanced GSS9000 Series GNSS Constellation Simulator at ION GNSS+ 2019 in Miami (September 16 – 20). It joins Spirent’s already impressive range of test solutions on display at the world’s largest showcase of GNSS technology, products and services.

The GSS9000 Series builds on its position as the industry-leading constellation simulator, with enriched features and enhanced capabilities combined with an increased channel capacity. Most importantly, this greater flexibility, coherence, fidelity, performance, accuracy and reliability is maintained under all test conditions.

At ION, Spirent (booth E) will also be showing its GSS6450 – the world’s first highly portable 16-bit RF record and playback system – and the GSS7000 series multi-frequency, multi-GNSS RF simulation solution. Visitors can also learn more about Spirent’s realistic multipath and obscuration simulation tool, Sim3D.

Spirent’s expertise will also be demonstrated during three ION GNSS+ speaking panels:

  1. Simulating Realistic Ionospheric Scintillation of GPS Signals for Robust PNT Testing – presented by Spirent’s Talini Pinto Jayawardena
  2. Development of Array Receivers with Anti-Jamming and Anti-Spoofing Capabilities with Help of Multi-Antenna GNSS Signal Simulators – presented by German Aerospace Center’s Andriy Konovaltsev
  3. Robust and Resilient PNT in Autonomous systems – the Need for the Development and Testing of Both Offensive and Defensive Technology Reserve paper to be presented by Spirent CAV software engineer Felix Krefft

President and CEO, Ellen Hall said, “Spirent Federal is proud to co-host two special events held during ION GNSS+ 2019: the GPS World Leadership Dinner and the ION Women in PNT event on Thursday.” These events help foster and support innovation in our field and Spirent Federal has been part of both of these groups since their beginning.
