Qinetiq and Rockwell Collins will collaborate on the development of new generation Multi Constellation Open Service (MCOS) and secured Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers, Qinetiq announced on 25 May.

The development will focus on a family of receivers to meet the operational, geographical and budgetary needs of military, government and civil GNSS users with high accuracy and timing. The aim is to increase safety and mission effectiveness, and reduce operational costs.

Qinetiq will draw on its experience in the field of advanced, low size, weight and power open service and secured multi-constellation satellite navigation receivers, while Rockwell Collins will apply its secure military GPS receiver market expertise.

Andy Thorp, group business development director, Qinetiq, said: ‘As we move into the era of multi-constellation satellite receivers this market leading agreement and the investment that sits behind it sends a clear message to our customers and shareholders that QinetiQ and Rockwell Collins are taking every step necessary to stay at the forefront of GNSS technical development and product delivery.

‘The development will be centred in Europe, led from the UK, supporting the global market.’
