Rockwell Collins has customized its NavFire TM Precision Positioning Service (PPS) GPS to Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s VULCANO family for naval and artillery applications.
Operating weapon systems in a harsh dynamic environment requires rapid start-up and high accuracy to hit the designated target and dramatically reduce the probability of collateral damages. These key elements translate to effective mission completion.
“We have customized the NavFire receivers for the particular caliber of the ammunition, and provided full support to the customer during and after the firing trials,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Rockwell Collins. “In the end, our product perfectly matched the demanding performance requirements of our customer.”
Derived from the field-proven 12-channel NavFire Precise Positioning Service GPS receiver, Rockwell Collins’ NavStrike military GPS offers high performance GPS for tightly coupled Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS) integrations.
The NavFire GPS includes the Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) to allow decryption of precision GPS observations through over-the-air rekeying. The positioning information is used by the guidance system of the projectile.
