NavHub system for German armed forces

15th September 2017 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rockwell Collins’ NavHub navigation system has been selected by the German Ministry of Defence to provide Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) availability to a variety of military vehicles, the company announced on 12 September.

The NavHub system will serve as a next-generation GNSS and military code (M Code)-enabled solution for the German armed forces.

The system is customisable for ground and maritime platforms, and provides a variety of vehicle interfaces. It meets the standards required by military vehicle operators, and enables users to receive data from multiple secure and open-service GNSS constellations to confirm the navigational solution. Access to multi-constellation GNSS and GPS M-Code will provide a significantly enhanced navigational solution over the current GPS-only solution.

Claude Alber, VP and MD, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘NavHub meets the critical mission need for accurate navigation support for fast-moving platforms and challenging environments.

‘Our military GNSS receivers will provide significantly enhanced navigational capabilities to military vehicles and will mitigate terrain, forest and urban degradation as it will raise the number of satellites used from 28 to well over 100.’
