GIANT

Overview

The Global Positioning System (GPS) Interference and Navigation Tool (GIANT) is a many-versus-many constructive and repeatable GOTS simulation tool that computes GPS/GNSS and other navigation system performance and mission impacts in a benign or electronic combat environment.

How it Works

GIANT is a constructive and repeatable mission-level simulation used to determine navigation performance and its impact upon air-to-ground or surface-to-surface operational effectiveness.

Applications

GIANT originated in 1996 to support the Navwar analysis of alternatives and has been applied to hundreds of analyses by numerous civilian and military user communities: acquisition, test and evaluation (T&E), training, and operations.

  • Navwar analysis: EA, EP, and ES with advanced threats
  • JCIDS/AoA Support: performance trade–off, CONOPS development, military utility analysis, and decision support
  • GPS analyses: interference and anti-jam, BFEA relative nav, flex power, spot beam, M–code, and weapons effects
  • T&E support: planning, predictions, and V&V
  • Operations support: GPS Operations Center (GPSOC) predictions/reports, JNWC test analysis and warfighter support, and AOC weapon system baseline (10.1)

Features

GIANT is regularly upgraded to reflect the continuing evolution of the GPS enterprise architecture and its augmentations, GNSS, Navigation Warfare (Navwar), and network-centric technologies.
