This paper will cover the current status of the Fielded MAPS Gen1 System as well as its future technology enhancement roadmap. Currently GPS-Source is inserting M-Code into MAPS Gen1 to help provide better PNT Assurance as well as better AJ immunity. GPS-Source has had multiple live tests that have verified that the insertion of M-Code is 100% compatible with the current product. Furthermore, GPS-Source is upgrading the MAPS Gen 1 to include, Victory, Army’s open standard for physical and logical interfaces between system and C4ISR/WE components. Finally, this paper will present several cost reduction initiatives and performance enhancements that will help make MAPS Gen1 available to more of our warfighters with greater protection of PNT.
