Spirent’s SimSAFE Fights Signal Vulnerability

March 1, 2014By

By Tracy Cozzens Spirent Communications now offers SimSAFE, a software solution that simulates legitimate GNSS constellations along with spoofed or hoax signals to evaluate receiver resilience and help develop counter measures. Hoax or spoofing attacks work by mimicking genuine GNSS signals, which mislead GNSS receivers.  The military and critical infrastructure — such as wireless networks, banking, and utilities — are especially... read more

It used to be that if you were going to build an RF navigation receiver, you had to also build your own simulation system to test it. I remember working with a couple of “home-built” RF simulation systems myself, way back when. We experience a lot of maintenance and support issues. And, of course, if you build something and also... read more
