About GUIDE – GNSS Testing Laboratory

GUIDE is a Testing Laboratory for satellite Geolocation. Our Centre of Excellence, resulting from a joint partnership of the key players in the French aerospace industry, aims to provide manufacturers and system integrators with instrumentation, expertise and approvals necessary to address the most demanding markets in satellite navigation. GUIDE is specially equipped to test the toughest GNSS solutions (Hardware, Algorithms, Receivers, Systems), either by simulation in the laboratory or live testing in real situations: urban areas, roads, rail, in the water, in the air. GUIDE pools the collective know-now of all its members to provide the best expertise in response to customer expectations. The founding members are all recognised GNSS specialists.  

Our Business

GUIDE activity is organised around three key skills:
a. Metrology (Legal). This aims to conduct perfectly controlled tests run according to methods from recognised laboratories or from standardisation committees.
b. Geolocation by Satellite (GNSS). This discipline includes additional technologies which consolidate information from Geolocation (Inertial …)
c. Understanding Criticality issues. This area covers integrity measurement as well as the validation of solutions which claim to conform to legal requirements.  

Our Missions

Our missions are testing services that fall into three categories:
a. Studying security and integrity levels inherent in Geolocation data
b. Checking the compliance of geolocation data collection methods with standards or rules in force.
c. Validating performance of GNSS equipment throughout the industrial process from design to production, including the testing of prototypes (Design & Architecture, R & D, prototyping, production).  

Our Expertise

GUIDE draws upon its members for expertise and experience. Depending on the project and required skills, GUIDE will select the most experienced specialists for the subject from among its Members . In the absence of standards or appropriate regulations, test plans are developed by engineering experts in the relevant fields.
