ExelisLogoITT Exelis has won a $2.15 million contract from the Air Force Research Laboratory to research navigation payloads that could support the Air Force‘s GPS program, Exelis said Wednesday.

Over 18 months, the company will research potential ways to reduce payload weight, size and power and help GPS users in either urban or mountainous terrain.
