Rockwell Collins to Develop GPS Jamming Technology for MIST Program
Rockwell Collins received a three-year contract from the Office of Naval Research to develop technology to locate and classify attempts to interfere with GPS signals and disrupt military operations.
The contract calls for Rockwell Collins to develop a prototype system for the Modernized Integrated Spoofer Tracking (MIST) program.
“This program will help assure that essential high accuracy navigation and timekeeping services are available to weapons platforms and military users while enabling warfighters to identify potential threats,” said John Borghese, vice president of the Rockwell Collins Advanced Technology Center. “This contract award further validates Rockwell Collins industry leading position as an innovator of GPS technology.”
Avionics Magazine recently hosted a webinar where a panel of experts discussed the importance of the GPS network to the future of aviation.
