MicroPilot, experts in autopilots for unmanned aerial systems (UAS), has selected GNSS specialists Spirent Communications, to help enhance the location accuracy and positioning resilience of its devices. MicroPilot engineering teams are using Spirent’s GSS9000 GNSS simulator to quickly verify their designs to offer end users the most accurate positioning regardless of location. MicroPilot is using multiple-antenna systems and required a simulator that can support these features and provide high-speed simulation. “Our customers demand products that are reliable and built to a high standard; and as UASs become more widely used their location and motion accuracy are becoming important issues,” said Howard W. Loewen, President of MicroPilot. “MicroPilot systems use GPS to navigate accurately, so we need to rigorously verify this functionality. The Spirent simulators have the performance to meet our most demanding use cases.” The GSS9000 GPS/GNSS simulator is the ultimate solution, giving the very best in performance, flexibility and capability.
