Major US Military Agency Selects Spirent Federal for Anechoic Chamber Testing

Spirent Federal Systems, a leader in global navigation satellite system (GNSS) test solutions, has received a contract to support anechoic chamber testing for a major U.S. military agency. Spirent’s GSS9790 Multi-Output, Multi-GNSS RF Constellation Wave-Front Simulator will be used as the signal generator attached to multiple transmission antennas for broadcast into the chambers.

Within this design, the antennas are structurally distributed to represent the correct arrival vectors of the simulated satellite signals on the device under test, creating the most realistic test environment possible. In addition, the GSS9790 supports interference sources located anywhere in the chamber to imitate different threat scenarios. Interference can threaten GNSS signals in multiple ways. Spirent recognizes the need for controlled, repeatable conditions to combat these threats. The GSS9790 delivers all the tools needed to successfully mitigate them.

The Spirent GSS9790 supports classified Y-code, SAASM, and M-code and can be found in key government labs across the country.

Spirent Federal Systems was formed in July 2001 by Spirent Communications as a wholly owned subsidiary and U.S. proxy company. Spirent Federal markets and sells Spirent Communications’ products in North America. The company also provides value-added features and ongoing customer support. It is headquartered in Pleasant Grove, UT, with support and sales offices throughout the US.
