Further your GNSS testing knowledge with Spirent

Join us for a comprehensive 1½ day seminar

The 2016 Spirent GNSS Testing Training Seminar features training led by Spirent’s product managers and engineers on state-of-the-art GNSS simulation and test equipment.

This seminar is designed to improve your knowledge and effectiveness in using Spirent simulation and record/playback equipment to evaluate the performance of PNT systems. It will particularly suit test engineers and product/project managers working on GNSS-based receivers, systems and applications.

Topics covered include:

  • Overview of the state-of-the-art in GNSS testing systems and approaches
  • Introduction to test approaches and methodologies
  • GNSS test fundamentals
  • Remote control & hardware-in-the-loop testing
  • Robust PNT considerations including jamming and spoofing
  • Advanced Modeling and Simulation Techniques
  • Antenna testing including CRPA test approaches

In addition, there will be customer case studies including:

  • Measured GNSS Jamming Events at German Motorways
  • Set-up & Verification of a Multi-GNSS Over-The-Air Wave Field Synthesis Testbed
  • Hardware-in-the-loop simulation



The training costs €175, which includes lunch on both days. Travel, hotel and dinner costs are the responsibility of delegates.
