Raytheon Technologies' intelligence and space business has handed over to the U.S. Air Force the 3,000th production unit of a GPS receiver built to help warfighters prevent jamming and interference while navigating the battlefield.
The company said Tuesday its MAGR 2000-S24 GPS receiver has been installed into 20 rotary and fixed-wing aircraft systems used by foreign military sales customers and the Department of Defense.
The upgrade to the legacy miniaturized airborne GPS receiver uses an open architecture design to enable the integration of GPS modernization updates such as the M-code frequency.
Eric Ditmars, vice president of Raytheon Intelligence and Space's Secure Sensor Solutions, said the device features optimized GPS acquisition capabilities to provide users with assured GPS data.
RI&S is currently developing the MAGR-2K-M receiver, a device designed to work with M-code signals.
The company noted it is working to integrate the device's initial production units into USAF's B-2 aircraft fleet.
