SAGE NavGuard 501 to be Integrated with MMAS
Mayflower Communications has been contracted by a Lockheed Martin Sippican to supply antenna systems in support of GPS anti-jam capability upgrade work on the US Navy’s submarine fleet.
Mayflower will integrate its Submarine Anti-Jam GPS Enhancement (SAGE) NavGuard 501 platform with the Navy’s Multifunction Mast Antenna System (MMAS) OE-538B. The platform is designed to transmit GPS signals to multiple receivers and works with M-code, SASSM P(Y) and C/A receivers.
The USN Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command has awarded a contract to a joint venture of Lockheed Martin Sippican and Granite State Manufacturing to upgrade the antenna mast system on USN submarines, to facilitate communications and address navigation warfare requirements.
