Accident Emergency Call Systems (AECS) are becoming more common in cars to harness the potential of new technologies to help improve road safety. For example, eCall is a European initiative intended to bring rapid assistance to motorists involved in a collision anywhere in the European Union. eCall is mandatory in all new cars approved for sale within the EU after April 2018.

M-Code – it is here. Public Law 111-383, Section 913 requires all military GPS user equipment purchased after FY 2017 to be M-Code capable, unless a waiver is issued the Secretary of Defense.

When it is time to test your device with an embedded GNSS receiver, there are several test methods. You can use the live sky signal, a record and playback device or a GNSS simulator.  However, when it is time to test your GNSS equipment designed to operate in space, live sky signal and record and playback are typically not options. You need a GNSS simulator. And not just any simulator: You need one designed to test GNSS receivers used in space-based applications.
