Raytheon GPS systems certified
Raytheon has received security certification for new GPS modules and receivers from the Global Positioning Systems Directorate, the company announced on 8 August.
The new modules and receivers will give military aircraft, ships, ground vehicles and weapon systems secure and reliable access to modernised GPS.
Raytheon's military code common GPS module has been certified, along with its ground-based GPS receiver, GB-GRAM; and the avionics GPS receiver, GRAM-S/M. GB-GRAM and GRAM S/M are jointly developed with Trimble, with cryptographic capabilities for the modules provided by General Dynamics.
Eric Ditmars, vice president of Raytheon's Secure Sensor Solutions, said: ‘Because GPS is under constant attack, we worked with our government partners to create new M-code modules and receivers that give the military secure and resilient navigation systems.
‘And since the tech is platform agnostic, it will work on a wide-range of platforms in the air, on the ground or at sea.’
