The DoD aims in December 2021 to begin rolling out Zero Trust architecture, as it moves away from network-centric to data-centric security models.
IAI, Honeywell team for GPS anti-jam solution
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Honeywell have signed a teaming agreement to jointly develop a GPS anti-jam navigation system to protect airborne avionic systems, IAI announced on 29 May.
The new system will combine IAI’s GPS anti-jam system with Honeywell’s navigation products, as a subsystem or as an embedded module. Following successful development, IAI’s ADA GPS anti-jamming system will be embedded into Honeywell’s GPS/Inertial Navigation System.
Carl Esposito, president, Electronic Solutions, Honeywell Aerospace, said: ‘With an increasing range of GPS-based military devices and systems comes the subsequent need for enhanced protection and multiple redundancies to prevent proliferating jamming threats.
‘Honeywell’s deep expertise in navigation technology, in conjunction with IAI’s ability to tackle unique security challenges with cutting-edge solutions, enables us to keep our customers’ critical navigation systems protected and operational – even in remote locations or harsh environments.’
