Raytheon to supply UK MoD with GPS anti-jam systems

5th December 2012 - 14:45 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon UK is to provide the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) with a new GPS anti-jam antenna system under a contract announced on 3 December. The contract is an Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR) award for an undisclosed number of systems.

This is the first award for Raytheon's GPS Anti-Jam (AJ) Land product family, and will see the company provide its advanced, lightweight system for deployment in operational theatres across multiple vehicle platforms. The contract value was not disclosed by the company.

According to Raytheon UK, the contract will see the deployment of the systems under a very short timescale, with final delivery of the capability expected to be completed six months from contract award.

Bob Delorge, chief executive, Raytheon UK, said: ‘Raytheon UK has a track record of on-time delivery for GPS AJ systems, having delivered over 7,000 units for air and naval capabilities in the UK and US. Many of the military platforms used in operations are protected by the proven Raytheon GPS anti-jam technology, and the first order for our Land GPS AJ product family marks a significant success.’
