BAE Systems Completes Acquisition of Military GPS Business

BAE Systems on Friday said it completed acquisition of the Collins Aerospace Military Global Positioning System (GPS) business from Raytheon Technologies Corporation.

As announced in January, this asset purchase is a unique opportunity to acquire a high-quality, technology-based business that augments the existing BAE Systems Electronic Systems portfolio through the addition of GPS anti-jamming and anti-spoofing technology that enables navigation and guidance for a range of defense missions, the company said in a release today.

The GPS business is developing the next generation M-Code GPS technologies for the US military. Utilisation of M-Code increases security, integrity and availability with US Congress having mandated M-Code for all military GPS user equipment after October 2020.
