Spirent Federal Systems Inc. said today that Rockwell Collins has selected Spirent Federal to supply multiple GPS simulators to support the Modernized User Equipment (MUE) Receiver Card Development contract it has with the GPS Wing.

The GPS modernization effort is a system-wide program that includes upgrades to the space, control and user segments.

The award includes Spirent Federal’s GSS7700 Series GPS Simulator, fully approved classified package, interface/jamming and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) M-Code and Simulator Data Sets (SDS) M-Code capability.

Spirent manufactures an extensive range of GPS test equipment, from simple production test units for the commercial market to the GSS7700 series for more technically demanding applications. Configurations include GPS L1 only, dual-frequency L1/L2 (including L2C), L5, a fully approved classified package, Satellite Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS), interface/jamming simulation, inertial interfaces, Hardware in the Loop (HIL) test capability, high dynamic capability, and M-Code. Spirent Federal also offers Russian GLONASS simulation and European Galileo simulation.
