Contract Includes Repair And Overhaul Services
Thales has been awarded a contract by the Service Industriel de l'Aéronautique (SIAé), France's military aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul service, to supply stand-alone GPS receivers for the French Navy's Lynx helicopters, which are currently being upgraded by the French defence procurement agency (DGA).
Thales’s GNSS 1000-S receiver relies on SAASM (Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module) technology to access military GPS encrypted signals. This technology also uses state-of-the-art signal processing offering extended satellite tracking capabilities in terms of precision, integrity, availability and jamming resistance in severe operational conditions.
Thales already equips FREMM multi-mission frigates, cruise missiles, Tiger helicopters, C-135 refuelling aircraft, Atlantique-2 marine patrol aircraft and Mirage 2000D fighters in service with the French armed forces, and the tanker aircraft being delivered for the UK’s FSTA (Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft) programme.
The GNSS 1000-S is part of Thales’s suite of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) products which will be presented at the European Navigation Conference in Gdansk, Poland, from 25-27 April, 2012. (Lynx helicopter pictured in file photo)
