Germany to receive M-Code user equipment
The company will deliver the technology to enable ‘precise, resilient, and secure geolocation and positioning capabilities that improve the effectiveness of allied operations’, BAE Systems noted on 29 June.
In particular, Germany will receive the Miniature PLGR Engine – M-Code (MPE-M) receiver, which delivers precise positioning, navigation, and timing capabilities; anti-jamming and anti-spoofing capabilities; a modern security architecture; and a size suitable for space-constrained applications.
Greg Wild, director of navigation and sensor systems at BAE Systems, said: ‘With adversaries trying to jam and spoof signals to disrupt forces and make precision munitions miss their marks, there’s a growing need for trusted GPS, which M-Code delivers.’
BAE Systems will provide the first MPE-M receivers to Germany for integration, test, and evaluation in 2021.
