Developing advanced military GPS receivers and chips

Developing advanced military GPS receivers and chipsBAE Systems has received a $247 million contract from the US Space Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center to design and manufacture an advanced military GPS receiver and next-generation semiconductor.

The technology will provide positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) capabilities to soldiers so they can execute missions in challenging electromagnetic environments.

The Military GPS User Equipment Increment 2 Miniature Serial Interface program will provide improved capabilities for size-constrained and power-constrained military GPS applications, including precision-guided munitions and battery-powered handheld devices.

The programme will focus on the certification of an advanced application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and the development of an ultra-small, low-power GPS module. Both products will work with the next-generation military M-Code signal technology, which provides reliable GPS data with anti-jamming and anti-spoofing capabilities to protect against electronic warfare threats.

Greg Wild, director of Navigation and Sensor Systems at BAE Systems, said: “This programme enables us to further develop our core M-Code technology to deliver high-performance, next-generation GPS capabilities.

“Our M-Code receiver and next-gen ASIC will enable secure and reliable military GPS capabilities in a broader range of platforms.”

BAE Systems’ Precision Strike business has 45 years of military GPS experience and more than 1.5 million GPS devices on over 280 platforms around the world. The company is currently producing M-Code GPS receivers in multiple form factors, including the lowest power, smallest form factor M-Code solution available on the market today.

Additional prototypes are in development for ground, weapons, and airborne mission applications, and the company’s M-Code GPS products are available to US allies via foreign military sales.

Work on the programme will be conducted at the company’s facility in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
