BAE Systems chooses Spirent Federal Systems
BAE Systems has selected Spirent Federal Systems, the leading provider of positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) test solutions, to provide a CRPA Test System to support M-Code military GPS technology development. BAE Systems is developing an advanced military GPS receiver and improving the capabilities of size-constrained and power-constrained military GPS applications, including precision-guided munitions and handheld devices. Spirent Federal is uniquely qualified to provide essential test equipment and support in the pursuit of resilient, accurate PNT data in GPS-degraded Navigation Warfare (NAVWAR) situations.
The Spirent CRPA Test System is a development of the unrivaled GSS9000 Series platform and can test …
- Controlled Reception Pattern Antennas (CRPAs)
- MNSA and AES M-code
- jamming and spoofing threats and mitigation
- ultra-high-dynamic vehicle applications
- inertial navigation systems
- additional encrypted military signals, Y-code and SAASM
- and more
CRPAs provide proven and effective protection against jamming in high-interference environments. The Spirent CRPA Test System can simulate 16+ individual elements with a separate RF output per antenna element. For the 16-element test system, concurrent simulation of GNSS signals, signals from spoofers and/or repeaters, and interference from multiple jammers—including BFEA jamming waveforms—results in over 1,000 simultaneous independent channels/signals simulated across a phase-calibrated precise wavefront.
Spirent can provide GNSS and interference signal simulation solutions for every stage in the CRPA design and verification process.
