Secure, Miniature GPS Rolled Out By Rockwell Collins

Designed To Be Compatable With All Types Of Military Equipment

A GPS receiver which is 90 percent smaller than the earlier version of the Miniature Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver Engine SAASM (MPETM-S) from Rockwell Collins was introduced by the company Wednesday. The company says the extraordinary size reduction represented by the new MicroGRAM GPS receiver means that equipment such as handheld radios, ruggedized field computers, laser range finders, gun scopes and small unmanned aircraft can be equipped with secure GPS capability.

“Today’s warfighters must be prepared to find their way in unfamiliar environments, along with having precision accuracy in their weapons systems. Our new MicroGRAM opens up a whole new world of secure, military GPS technology for equipment that previously could not have it,” said Bob Haag, vice president and general manager of Precision Strike and Navigation Products for Rockwell Collins. “Before now, this equipment could only use commercial GPS technology, which does not have the required military security features that warfighters need to avoid enemy threats.”

MicroGRAM’s unique security features are the result of designing a rugged product that leverages Rockwell Collins’ strong legacy in providing Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) capabilities to our warfighters. Engineered to minimize its footprint and power usage, the MicroGRAM (GPS Receiver Application Module) has also been optimized to allow rapid acquisition of the GPS satellites when the power is first supplied to it.
