Guide to GNSS Simulation: Essential or Advanced?

Regular testing and simulation are essential to identify weaknesses, prevent system failure and ensure continuous operations.

About GNSS Testing and Simulation

The worst time to find out that you have a GNSS signal or PNT data problem is when your critical system has already been deployed in the field, in space or in a signal compromised environment. A well-designed testing methodology consists of the below steps:
