Access to the Modernised GPS Network

Raytheon M-code Receiver Enhances Security, Positioning, Navigation & Timing Capabilities

 

The US Air Force (USAF) recently completed a series of successful flight tests of its next-generation military-code GPS using a Raytheon receiver onboard a B-2 SPIRIT at Edwards Air Force Base, California. This first ever M-code test onboard the B-2 is an important milestone for the US government-led GPS Modernisation effort to enhance security, positioning, navigation and timing capabilities for US military and civilian applications. Military GPS User Equipment M-code receivers will give military aircraft, ships and ground vehicles access to the modernised GPS network.

M-code receivers unlock the next-generation GPS network for military users,” Rick Yuse, President of Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems, said. “This test demonstrated M-code capability onboard the B-2 for the first time, marking an early milestone for the overall GPS modernisation effort.”

The tests verified the integration of an MGUE-equipped risk reduction prototype of Raytheon’s Miniaturised GPS Airborne Receiver MAGR-2K-M receiver with B-2 systems in representative flight and mission profiles.
