Collins Aerospace M-Code CGM certified

28th May 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Collins Aerospace Systems has received the GPS Directorate (GPS-D) security certification from the US Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center for its Military Code (M-Code) Common GPS Module (CGM).

The certification validates compliance to the stringent Military GPS User Equipment (MGUE) hardware and software security design specification.

With security certification, the US Department of Defense can significantly expand MGUE receiver integration and testing locations supporting the operational deployment of M-Code. 

Close to 800 Collins Aerospace M-Code receivers have been provided to weapons, surface and airborne platform integrators for the MGUE programme so far. Independent testing confirmed the receivers provide enhanced anti-jamming capabilities within the lowest power solution available. The ground-based receiver utilises the smaller Type-II form factor making it suitable for lightweight, dismounted GPS receiver applications.

The security certification serves as the foundation for M-Code products that are currently in prototype or full development status for ground, weapons, and airborne mission applications. The same security-certified CGM, re-used on all of these products, will help expedite the integration of M-Code into more platforms in the future. 

The security certification also allows Collins Aerospace’s CGM-based M-Code receivers to be eligible for export to US allies through the foreign military sales programme.
