In order to assess the performance of the RUT in the presence of interfer- ence, different metrics were selected. e following outputs from the GNSS receiver are recorded and analyzed for all the test methodologies: • Number of tracked satellites • Position fix indicator (a Boolean to indicate if a 3D position fix is avail- able or not) • Number of satellites used in fix • Carrier-to-Noise density (C/N 0 ) ratio • East-North-Up position error Moreover, depending on the test methodology, additional parameters are evaluated. For example, in the case of the TTRP test method, the time taken for the RUT to re-obtain a position fix aer a strong interference event is measured. For the sensitivity test method, the Jamming-to-Signal ratio at which the position solution is no longer available and the availability of the position solution during the interference event are computed. Fur- thermore, position accuracy statistics are computed for the interval in which the interference is present when the receiver offers a valid position fix. Currently, only GPS L1 and Galileo E1 signals are used for testing and the RUT is configured to operate in static stand-alone mode.
