Why are we Talking About Multi-GNSS
Today, navigation and positioning technology is no longer just about GPS L1 C/A code. GPS is being modernized, the GLONASS constellation is nearly complete, new systems including QZSS, IRNSS, Galileo and Compass are on the way.
Multi-GNSS offers significant opportunities and challenges to GNSS technology, system and application developers.
Spirent multi-GNSS simulation systems are now being purchased by customers developing commercial systems and most chipset manufacturers have plans to release dual constellation chipsets before the end of 2010.
If you haven’t already done so, check out this comprehensive article in Inside GNSS magazine on Multi-GNSS testing from the R&D stage through Integration, Validation to Production
Testing Multi-GNSS equipment: Systems, Simulators and the Production Pyramid
As new GNSS systems appear, the time for multi-GNSS simulator testing has arrived. Three receiver designers and researchers look at use of this essential tool throughout the entire receiver development cycle: from research, development, design and validation through chip, module, OEM and user device development sequences and on to consumer testing, certification, maintenance and repair. http://www.insidegnss.com/node/2143.
