Rockwell Collins Develops Advanced Remote Secure Receiver For Soldiers
08:46 AM, February 10, 2015
Rockwell Collins has developed the Remote Secure Receiver (RSR) that features smallest, lowest power, protected, secure and trusted Selected Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) GPS solution for the soldiers.
The RSR which was recently ordered by the Battlefield Airmen Office of the Air Force Special Operations Command, offers the warfighter assured PNT information, enabling increased situational awareness, and the ability to support highly effective fires missions that reduce fratricide and collateral damage.
The increasing use of jamming and spoofing devices, along with the advent of soldiers using a combination of commercial smart phones, tablets and military off-the-shelf devices has led to need for technology that secures these devices, according to the press release.
The RSRs plug and play capability can be tailored to meet individual soldier configurations. A single RSR is capable of providing unhindered use of secure military GPS to multiple systems on the soldier platform, which offers war fighters maximum flexibility while eliminating the need for a unique military GPS receiver for each system.
“RSR takes the mental and physical burden off the soldiers by providing them with worry-free confidence that they can execute all of their operations without being spoofed or jammed,” said Mike Jones, vice president and general manager of Communication and Navigation Products for Rockwell Collins.
“The need for trusted position, navigation and timing (PNT) is vital. In fact, the GPS jamming and spoofing threat is growing,” he added.
“The impacts of unassured PNT can be deadly. When navigating without a secure military GPS device, in a jamming or spoofed environment, a soldiers position can be greater than 500 meters off in just five minutes. These deficiencies can seriously limit the ability of soldiers to successfully conduct operations”, he said.
