Air Force Orders 300 More M-Code Receivers

The U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (USAF SMC) has ordered an additional 300 Military Code (M-Code) Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers from Rockwell Collins.

Rockwell Collins received a follow-on order for an additional 300 Military Code (M-Code) Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers from the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (USAF SMC). The order comes after Rockwell Collins’ recent fulfillment of 770 receivers in support of the Military GPS User Equipment (MGUE) program.

“This order will help accelerate the rapid integration and fielding of M-Code,” noted Rob Scott, director of Navigation Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “The delivery of our high-performing M-Code GPS receivers will enable the next generation of reliable and secure military navigation.”

This is an example of one of the 300 M-Code GPS receivers recently ordered by the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (USAF SMC) from Rockwell Collins.

The next major development milestone for Rockwell Collins’ M-Code receivers is the expected 2018 completion of the Global Positioning Systems Directorate (GPS-D) security certification. Completion of certification will expedite broader testing of the M-Code receivers in more platforms and locations.
