Spirent Introduces Software to Accelerate GNSS Product Evolution

Spirent Federal Systems, the nation´s provider of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) testing solutions, has announced the release of SimIQ, a new software that will allow for earlier and more efficient GNSS testing during product development, the company said.

From software-in-the-loop through to final form testing, SimIQ enables developers to collaborate across the full design lifecycle through the creation, sharing and replay of I/Q data files.

SimIQ has been developed to meet the growing need to test GNSS capabilities earlier to accelerate product development, while simultaneously reducing costs by identifying issues prior to the purchase of hardware components. For developers using Spirent´s market-leading GSS9000 and GSS7000 simulators, SimIQ extends multi-frequency, multi-constellation simulation capabilities to cover software-only testing needs through the capture and replay of high fidelity I/Q data files. Housed in a single system, SimIQ reads and generates I/Q data with two major components, SimIQ Capture and SimIQ Replay.
