GPS Regulatory requirements?

#1
Hi all,

Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question. But my company is looking into developing a commercial gps and I, for the life of me, cannot find anything about the regulatory and testing requirements for developing a gps device.

If this is the correct place to post this question please let me know where to go from here. Thanks in advance to anyone with some advice!

Without knowing more about your device, you have a receiver, not an intentional radio emitter.

From an EMC standpoint, what indubioush said. Probably FCC Part 15, class A device.

If you are using someone else's chip (ST, Maxim, Furuno?), or OEM reciever (Novatel?), that probably makes life significantly easier than a ground-up design. They will be set up to be EMC compliant already, AND perhaps more importantly: aligned with EAR/ITAR regulations. Check out the ITAR munitions list, category XII(d)...I think. GPS isn't my typical realm when interacting with the munitions list. Anyway, ensure you are compliant, and willing to adequately resource compliance through your sales channels if needed.
