Rockwell to deliver DIGAR to USAF
Rockwell Collins has been selected by the US Air Force Life Cycle Management Center to provide its Digital GPS Anti-Jam Receiver (DIGAR) for airborne platforms, the company announced on 9 November.
Built on an open systems architecture, DIGAR has been designed for use across a variety of aircraft platforms including rotary wing, fixed-wing fighter, bomber, transport aircraft and UAS.
With advanced GPS threat protection levels, DIGAR receivers will provide navigation support - position, navigation and timing -to the US Air National Guard and US Air Force Reserve F-16 aircraft operating in contested, electromagnetic environments. The F-16 will be the first combat fighter aircraft to be installed with the latest version of the receiver.
Integration of the DIGAR receiver requires no changes to existing operational flight programmes or A-kit aircraft wiring.
