Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Honeywell signed a Teaming Agreement (TA) to introduce the market of airborne avionics with a jointly developed turnkey GPS Anti-Jam navigation system.
The joint product integrates IAI's GPS Anti-Jam system with Honeywell's navigation products, as a subsystem or as an embedded solution. Upon successful development, IAI's GPS anti jamming system the ADA, an advanced system that protects avionic systems from GPS jamming, will be embedded into Honeywell's Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System (EGI).
Modern navigation, communications, and intelligence collection and electronic warfare systems integrated in modern platforms, rely on the uninterrupted availability of satellite-based navigation and timing for their operation. Despite this dependency, most platforms do not use any counter measure systems to protect those essential assets. Remaining exposed, even low-power jammers can disrupt or even deny the operation of GNSS systems, thus degrading the platform's capability to fulfill its mission. - As a result of contracts signed over the past year, the GPS Anti-Jam Navigation System has been sold to a number of customers and is already operational.
Joseph Weiss, IAI's president and CEO: "We're excited to work with Honeywell, a leading company in navigation systems and avionics. This collaboration brings together the operational experience as well as the manufacturing and technology excellence of two leading companies. Based on the everyday experience, gathered by working tightly with warfighters worldwide, the joint product will provide the end users with the required features to optimize the operational capabilities of their assets. The agreement strengthens the relations between the two companies, which see the flourishing market and the potential of the growing business.
Carl Esposito, president, Electronic Solutions, Honeywell Aerospace: "With an increasing range of GPS-based military devices and systems comes the subsequent need for enhanced protection and multiple redundancies to prevent proliferating jamming threats. Honeywell's deep expertise in navigation technology, in conjunction with IAI's ability to tackle unique security challenges with cutting-edge solutions, enables us to keep our customers' critical navigation systems protected and operational - even in remote locations or harsh environments".
China's domestic Beidou Navigation Satellite System will equipped with the new missile-borne anti-interference antenna developed by a Chinese defense technology firm, this year, local media reports. "The domestically-built missile-borne anti-interference antenna is based on array signal processing technology, and will greatly help the country's People's Liberation Army (PLA) units counter the enemy's jamming efforts against the BeiDou system in battle," Jin Zhongshu, deputy general manager of the Beijing Li Gong Navigation Technology Co, told Global Times on Thursday on the sidelines of the China Satellite Navigation Exhibition at the ongoing 9th China Satellite Navigation Conference (CSNC) in Harbin of Northeast...
Rockwell Collins has delivered the latest generation Digital GPS Anti-Jam Receiver (DIGAR) airborne anti-jam and anti-spoofing technology to the US Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC). The enhanced solution provides airborne anti-jam capability with over 10,000 times improved jamming resistance over the previous model, the company announced Thursday
The US Air Force (USAF) has completed product upgrade verification (PUV) flight tests of GPS anti-jam software and hardware for the AGM-158A Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) and AGM-158B JASSM-Extended Range (ER) long-range, conventionally armed, precision stealth weapons in GPS-degraded and non-jammed environments. The tests, designated PUV-16 and PUV-17, were conducted at the US Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexicoin mid- and late-2016, but only disclosed by JASSM manufacturer Lockheed Martin in March 2017,
An Israeli cyber-security company GPSdome is marketing a miniature GPS anti-jammer to prevent disruptions to GPS. The pocket-sized gadget protects GPS based systems from disturbances at a more affordable cost than comparable military appliances, according to the firm
