What’s the biggest challenge in simulating new GNSS signals for manufacturers’ product testing?
“Anyone can follow a spec, but real expertise is required for interpreting nascent ICDs, looking for inconsistencies and pitfalls. The first receivers to market may not always get it right, especially before and during early live-sky signal broadcasts.” — John Fischer, Orolia
“The challenge is twofold. Manufacturers are constantly implementing new signals, which is extremely difficult and expensive to do without the use of a simulator in a lab. The second problem manufacturers are facing is integrating secure signals across international constellations.” — Ellen Hall, Spirent Federal Systems
“The industry has been stimulated by growing constellations and the arrival of new signals, resulting in an increasing number of sophisticated receivers hitting the market. Our biggest challenge is ensuring that all simulated signals work on all of these receivers.” — Julian Thomas, Racelogic Ltd.
