Positioning Application: What is Galileo Search and Rescue?
: Since the 1980s, satellites have been used to detect the signals from emergency beacons and relay them to the appropriate Search & Rescue (SAR) authorities. Learn the test implications and the considerations for scenario generation.
Keeping your eye on the sky
: Any radio system is only as good as its antenna. You can have the most expensive, highest-definition television money can buy, but if you pair it with a poor antenna you will be throwing away the benefit of all that costly performance. This philosophy is no less true for GNSS systems. This Application Note explains why modelling the performance of your GNSS system’s antenna is important, and how to accomplish it with your Spirent GNSS simulator.
Positioning Application: What happened on January 25-26 2016?
: On 25 - 26 January 2016, GPS users encountered a rare event. Multiple satellites started to broadcast incorrect timing information, specifically the offset between GPS and UTC (USNO). Spirent now offers a scenario where users can test the effects of this event, and make sure that their receivers are capable of handling such an event.
