YORBA LINDA, Calif., 17 May 2006. The U.S. Navy's Naval Air Systems Command PMA209 Common System Integration Lab in Patuxent River, Md., has purchased and taken delivery of a Spirent Simulation System from Spirent Federal, a provider of GPS satellite simulators. It will be used to test a variety of GPS Receivers.

The systems purchased by Patuxent River include Spirent Federals' GSS7712 L1/L2 simulators, Classified Package, Pseudo M code, Remote Control option, Inertial Interfaces, and training. The Inertial Interfaces allow the user to emulate the output of Inertial sensors, while simulating the GPS RF signals. This allows users to test combined GPS/Inertial Receivers.

NAVAIR Patuxent River's (Aircraft Division including the Webster Field Annex) mission is to support NAVAIR in providing the warfighter with combat power through technologies that deliver dominant combat effects and matchless capabilities.

Patuxent River provides effective and affordable integrated warfare systems and life cycle support by performing research, development, test and evaluation, engineering and fleet support for manned and unmanned aircraft, engines, avionics, aircraft support systems and ship/shore/air operations.
