The A-PNT device will feature anti-jamming technology and will be manufactured at BAE Systems’ Cedar Rapids facility.

BAE Systems has added to its military GPS portfolio by introducing a new gun-hardened GPS receiver featuring integrated anti-jamming technology.

NavStorm-M has been designed for artillery, bombs, missiles and unmanned systems and was unveiled at the Joint Navigation Conference taking place in Cincinnati this week.

The newly enhanced GPS receiver will be produced at the company’s engineering and manufacturing facility in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

According to BAE Systems, the GPS receiver has adopted a “layered protection approach” that utilises beamforming, anti-spoofing, resiliency and software assurance. The next-generation Assured-Positioning, Navigation and Timing (A-PNT) device will also feature M-Code GPS technology.

BAE Systems director of weapon systems for GPS Doug Lloyd claimed: “With the introduction of the compact and highly jam- and spoof-resistant NavStorm-M, our team now provides advanced, cost-effective solutions for everyone in the M-Code space.”

NavStorm-M has been designed to meet the size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) requirements of unmanned aircraft systems, loitering munitions and hypersonic platforms, and can also deliver precise GPS navigation as a stand-alone system.

BAE Systems has started delivery of M-Code GPS receivers to the US armed forces and its allies via the Foreign Military Sales programme.
