US Army air and missile defence radar includes M-Code for enhanced position, navigation and timing plus protection against EW threats.

M-Code military GPS receivers have been integrated into the Sentinel A4 air and missile defence radar for the US Army.

Oriola Defense & Security revealed on 27 July that it delivered a shipment of M-Code enabled SecureSync mission timing and synchronisation units in May to Sentinel A4 manufacturer Lockheed Martin.

‘SecureSync with M-Code provides enhanced resilient positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) capabilities and improved resistance to existing and emerging GPS threats, such as jamming and spoofing,’ Oriola added.

SecureSync M-Code features a modular, open architecture –characteristics shared by Sentinel A4, simplifying the integration process and ensuring future upgrades. 

Hironori Sasaki, president of Orolia Defense & Security, said: ‘Making M-Code available now in a readily configurable and scalable form factor is a critical step in advancing our forces out in the field.’
