Space Force awards military GPS receiver contract to BAE Systems
BAE Systems has received a $247 million contract from the US Space Force Space and Missile Systems Center, to design and manufacture an advanced military GPS receiver and next-generation semiconductor for positioning, navigation, and timing capabilities in contested electromagnetic environments.
The Military GPS User Equipment Increment 2 Miniature Serial Interface (MGUE 2 MSI) programme will provide ‘improved capabilities for size-constrained and power-constrained military GPS applications, including precision-guided munitions and battery-powered handheld devices’, BAE Systems noted in a 17 February statement.
The programme will focus on certification of an advanced application-specific integrated circuit and the development of an ultra-small, low-power GPS module.
Both products will work with the military M-Code signal technology, which provides reliable GPS data with anti-jamming and anti-spoofing capabilities to protect against EW threats.
