Exelis to Research AF GPS Payloads; Mark Pisani Comments

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.

Mark Pisani, a vice president and general manager in the geospatial systems business, said the company is aiming to gain flexibility in choosing launch vehicles with the GPS Navigation Satellite program.

Exelis will perform work on the GPS NAVSAT program in Clifton, N.J. and in Bloomfield, N.J.
