Marine systems manufacturer Kongsberg uses record and replay system for GPS device interference testing

By DA Staff / 09 Jan 2011

Based in Norway, Konsburg is one of the world’s leading international marine electronics manufacturers, providing products for safe navigation and operations at sea.

With equipment designed to be used in marine operations where high positional accuracy is critical, Konsburg needed a way to repeatedly test the real world performance of their equipment. To do this, they have been using LabSat to test the effects of interference on their new positioning reference system, the DPS 4D, which offers worldwide sub-metre accuracy.

Arne Rinnan, CTO of Kongsberg Seatex AS, said: “Using LabSat to record and replay real GPS data, and observing temporary interference from telecoms equipment was extremely beneficial to our engineers in assisting with the development of our advanced DGPS products.”
