Spirent debuts practical PNT framework.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2015 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

Spirent Communications said it has released its Robust PNT Test Framework that evaluates GPS and GNSS security vulnerabilities for positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) systems.

Threats to GNSS and related PNT applications are more orchestrated and coordinated, with the motivation to disrupt or cause financial loss. The technology to disrupt GPS has also become much more accessible, resulting in GPS vulnerability gaining attention at hacker conventions.

The Robust PNT Test Framework will be used by technology, system and application developers where PNT is critical. Spirent's framework enables threats to be detected in the field, taken into the lab and re-synthesized along with GPS and other GNSS signals. In addition, Spirent's threat intelligence library of actual and typical threats provides a wide range of GNSS segment errors, spoofing attacks as well as space weather and other vulnerabilities for preventive troubleshooting.

Spirent Communications plc. (LSE: SPT) is a leading provider of verification, assessment, analytics, and device intelligence solutions.
