Spirent Communications announced the addition of premium enhancements to its GSS9000 Series to further extend its position as the GNSS constellation simulator. Among the enhancements, a doubling of the update rate capability means the GSS9000 series now offers an unrivaled ability to recreate operations more precisely and realistically, reducing uncertainty in positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) testing.
The latest developments provide the GSS9000 series with the power to run simulations at a software and hardware update rate of up to 2 kHz, improving accuracy of the simulated trajectory without compromising performance. This is of particular benefit to high-dynamics applications, like space missions and hypersonic vehicles.
Other enhancements to the GSS9000 Series include:
● Extended Scenario Duration – The new update will extend the available scenario duration to 65 days, using the same initial conditions for the simulation throughout the duration of testing to deliver uninterrupted high-performance simulation for longer.
● Enhanced Embedded Interference Capabilities –To provide greater power and adaptability in interference testing, Spirent has improved support for interference testing on wide spectrum signals, increased bandwidth resolution and repetition rates, and added variable bandwidth control on additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN).
