gps signal tests on water

Building a New Laboratory for M-Code GPS Signal Tests

Adversarial electronic warfare efforts have become increasingly sophisticated, threatening national security. In preparation for large-scale testing on a variety of GPS user equipment from multiple vendors, the Navy was tasked with building a new GNSS laboratory. Historically, the GPS community had only used two platforms for M-Code testing, both of which had Air Force GPS directorate approval. However, neither of these platforms were a good fit for this particular Navy lab.

How did the Navy find their ideal solution while meeting the technical standards set by the Air Force GPS Directorate? Click the link below to read the Customer Application and learn how Spectrum Defender became a trusted testing solution in the GPS community.

military in the field using RF tech

Leveraging Captured RF Data Across Multiple Labs

The Navy built an extensive library of captured RF data that represented a variety of contested electromagnetic environments. The Marine Corps recognized the value in leveraging this existing library and searched for compatible test equipment. They required instrumentation with ease of use, standard file formats for quick data sharing from lab to lab, synchronization across multiple record channels, and more—all within a quick turnaround.

Warfighters conducting field tests to create a record of ground truth

Establishing a Permanent Record of Ground Truth

At White Sands Missile Range, testing for wireless receivers took four branches of the military in one accord. Testing costs escalated rapidly for manpower and range time. In order to make the most of every moment on the range, the Navy sought a solution beyond the traditional approach of capturing static plots. 

To read the full Customer Application, please click the link below. Learn how Spectrum Defender provided a direct, continuous record of the electromagnetic environment and enabled a single point of reference for testing rather than relying on a dusty test report.

Satellite payload test

Minimizing Tedious Calibration During Satellite Payload Test

A major defense prime assembled a team of highly skilled engineers to test their satellite before a launch with multi-channel, phase coherent RF equipment. After an extensive search, the team remained frustrated by the laborious calibration procedure associated with every proposed solution. Except one. Spectrum Defender demonstrated an alternate approach that minimized calibration and met their testing needs in time for the launch.
