Spirent Federal has launched an alternative Radio Frequency (RF) navigation simulator that can simulate resilient alternative RF navigation signals on its own or concurrently with GNSS signals. 

Testing of the simulator can be static or dynamic, with stationary, pedestrian and ground vehicle trajectories available.

“As a result of our extensive research and development incorporating a variety of Assured PNT technologies, we’re pleased to be the first to provide this capability to our customers,” says Roger Hart, director of engineering. 

“Our product enables developers to test early and often, from the first stages of R&D to integration and field testing. Solutions can be tested with edge cases, hardened against interference, and deployed faster with greater confidence they will work for our warfighters.”

As GPS jamming and spoofing continue to rise, interest in complementary sources of Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) data has also increased. Spirent is actively engaged with several alternative RF navigation technologies and technology providers to incorporate signal simulation capability in GPS-degraded or denied environments.
