Failure Not an Option in Navigation Warfare

The Solution

We found a commercial off-the-shelf system explicitly built to detect and locate RF interference and added a spoof-detection capability that we developed. We then tested the solution using an automated testing and analysis architecture capable of running hundreds of tests without operator intervention that we engineered specifically for this project.

Now, in addition to the completed sensor testing, the Army has a more thorough and replicable capability to test GPS receivers, antennas, and sensors. Officials can respond quickly to emerging threats and have confidence in test results.

The Future

The team’s work meant we delivered our client’s requirements in time to meet an urgent operational need and enhanced our client’s standing in the military PNT community. We also left residual capability that will benefit the Army, and possibly other clients, as they address other PNT challenges.
