Raytheon, Space and Airborne Systems (Raytheon SAS), is developing a next generation of Military GPS User Equipment (MGUE) receivers.
The MGUE program includes integration and test of a Digital ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) as well as the supporting digital and RF hardware and associated software that comprise a modern military GPS receiver. These MGUE receivers take advantage of a Common GPS Module (CGM) architecture. This CGM architecture includes the traditional core receiver functions (e.g., acquisition, track, navigation) as well as the GPS cryptography and code generation. Raytheon SAS’s CGM supports both the ground-embedded (GB-GRAM-M) and avionics/maritime (GRAM-S/M) applications.
Raytheon continues to support the GPSD Directorate in the evaluation of Request for Changes (RFCs) which allow the MGUE requirements to evolve. Significant progress has been made in the last several years relating to software deliveries as well as the Security Certification process. Raytheon has also been developing additional MGUE INC1 GPS based products to support additional platforms and form factors beyond the GRAM-S/M and GB-GRAM-M.
This presentation will review the Raytheon M-code receiver architecture, on-going test results, recent accomplishments, product development, and production status of this state-of-the-art M-Code receiver technology.
