Greg Wild, Director, BAE Systems

BAE Systems announced on Tuesday that it has secured a potential $325.5 million Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) contract for advanced Military Code (M-Code) Global Positioning System (GPS) modules.

The modules are meant to provide reliable and secure positioning, navigation and timing data with anti-jamming and anti-spoofing capabilities, and to assist warfighters operating in contested electronic warfare environments.

“Our state-of-the-art GPS technology works with the advanced military M-Code signal to provide reliable information to the warfighters who depend on it. This contract will ensure the availability of M-Code module inventory to build advanced, next-generation GPS receivers,” commented Greg Wild, director of navigation and sensor systems at BAE Systems. 

The contract requires BAE Systems to develop Modernized GPS User Equipment (MGUE) Increment 1 Common GPS Modules (CGMs) compatible with the advanced M-Code signal to support the Department of Defense (DOD)  and international allies. Deliveries will be conducted through 2030. 

The company will manufacture the modules, manage their inventory on behalf of the DLA and use them to build military-grade GPS receivers for ground and precision-guided weapons.

BAE Systems’ M-Code GPS receivers are designed for airborne systems, precision munitions, handheld receivers and embedded applications. 

The Miniature Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver Engine  M-Code (MPETM-M) is the smallest M-Code technology on the market and is currently available, along with the NavStrikeTM-M GPS receiver for precision-guided munitions. There are also additional receivers in development for transition to M-Code.
