Exelis-LogoITT Exelis has won a contract to provide anti-jam GPS antennas to Raytheon, who is building antenna systems for the Boeing-made KC-46 refueling tanker.

Exelis designed the N79 Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna to prevent deliberate jamming and unintentional interference of timing signals on aircraft GPS systems, the company said Tuesday.Raytheon logo_Ebiz

The CRPA antennas are intended to integrate with Raytheon’s Navshield and Advanced Digital Antenna Production anti-GPS jamming systems, according to Exelis.

“For the U.S. Air Force to perform its global power and global reach missions, a reliable air-to-air refueling capability is required,” said Paul Eyring, Exelis senior director of programs for antennas, sensors and microelectronics.

Eyring said the company is aiming to help mitigate signals that interfere with the KC-46’s systems and help it deliver fuel to other aircraft.

The company builds anti-jam GPS antennas for U.S. and allied military forces to use on fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, ships and unmanned platforms.
