Rockwell Collins has won a contract for providing MicroGRAM GPS receivers for Harris Corporation's tactical radios, the company announced on Wednesday.

Under this contract, Rockwell Collins will provide 5,000 MicroGRAM GPS receivers to Harris over a three-year period, and deliveries began in January.

The addition of these receivers will provide jam-resistant GPS capabilities to products such as the Falcon III AN/PRC-158 and AN/PRC-117G. It has already provided the system for Textron's Aerosonde UAS.

By selecting MicroGRAM, Harris will meet the US Department of Defense's requirement to use Selective Availability/Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) technology in its products.

Mike Jones vice president and general manager of communication and navigation products, Rockwell Collins said “MicroGRAM enables Harris Corporation to meet military customer demands for embedded, secure GPS.”

“MicroGRAM protects warfighters from the growing jamming and spoofing threats on the battlefield, while enhancing survivability and mission success.”Jones added.

George Helm, president Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications, said “Integrating the MicroGRAM receiver into a number of our new tactical radios allows us to reduce the size and weight while extending the battery life of our products”.
