A new global navigation satellite system (GNSS) dataset of digitized RF signals named Oak Ridge Spoofing and Interference Test Battery (OAKBAT) has been created. OAKBAT contains digitized spoofing signals that serve as both a supporting “sibling” and an advancement to the widely used Texas Spoofing Test Battery (TEXBAT) dataset [1]. OAKBAT at its core was developed to 1) allow for 100% reproducibility of the data, 2) provided more detailed metadata and contextual information about each dataset such as the precise moment that the spoofing and/or interference signals begins, positions used, constellations visible, etc., and 3) to provide datasets generated using the same key parameters as the TEXBAT ds1 through ds6 datasets. Through these “sibling” datasets it will now be possible to determine if the behavior of algorithms and designs developed using these datasets are being affected by possible intrinsic behavior and properties of the equipment used in the generation and digitization of the two datasets. The end goal of OAKBAT is to be a new resource for the community of researchers and developers working in the field of GNSS. This additional source of data provides a GNSS “playground” on which to experiment, explore, and evaluate new ideas.
