ONR Awards Contract To Develop GPS Jamming And Spoofing Detection Technology

Taps Rockwell Collins For The Three-Year MIST Program

The Office of Naval Research has awarded Rockwell Collins a contract to develop technology to locate and classify an adversary’s attempts to interfere with GPS signals and disrupt military operations. “This program will help assure that essential high accuracy navigation and timekeeping services are available to weapons platforms and military users while enabling warfighters to identify potential threats,” said John Borghese, vice president of the Rockwell Collins Advanced Technology Center. “This contract award further validates Rockwell Collins industry leading position as an innovator of GPS technology.”

The three-year contract for the Modernized Integrated Spoofer Tracking (MIST) program calls for Rockwell Collins to develop technology and prototype system concepts to detect and locate the sources of transmitted signals that are intended to disrupt the warfighter’s ability to navigate and communicate. In the first year, Rockwell Collins will develop advanced algorithms. During the second and third years, the company will conduct, validate and refine the capability through lab testing and demonstrations.
 
Nearly 30 years ago, Rockwell Collins assisted the U.S. Air Force in developing GPS technology and that legacy continued when the company created the world’s first all-digital miniature GPS receiver under contract with DARPA. Over the years, Rockwell Collins has developed numerous GPS products and delivered more than 1 million GPS receivers that meet demanding, high integrity and secure Federal Aviation Administration and Department of Defense certification requirements. The company’s role on the MIST program will continue this legacy of creating leading edge GPS solutions.
