Spirent enhances GNSS simulation capability to reduce costs

Spirent Communications has launched its automation and reporting tool, TestDrive-GNSS for SimGEN and SimREPLAYplus controlled GNSS test systems.

TestDrive-GNSS automates the testing process to reduce costs and testing times associated with characterization of GNSS devices.

TestDrive-GNSS provides a suite of test cases that enables fundamental characterization tests to be performed in an automated and controlled way. Examples of fundamental characterization tests
include time-to-first-fix (TTFF), acquisition sensitivity, tracking sensitivity, re-acquisition time, and static and dynamic navigation accuracy.

“TestDrive-GNSS unlocks the full power of a Spirent GNSS simulation system, enabling the test equipment to do the work with minimal intervention,” said Stuart Smith, product manager for Spirent’s navigation & positioning division.

TestDrive-GNSS has close synergy with Spirent’s TestDrive-ULTS software for the 8100 Location Technology Solution, which tests GSM, UMTS and LTE mobile devices and chipsets and provides
certified test cases to the 3G Partnership Project Assisted GPS RF Minimum Performance and Signaling Conformance standards as well as to the Open Mobile Alliance Secure User Plane standards.

Spirent’s positioning & navigation solutions are the first choice of major manufacturers, integrators, test facilities and space agencies worldwide for GNSS testing and simulation solutions.
