Defense procures advanced GPS tools from Rockwell Collins

The Defense Department has awarded a $7.8 million contract modification to Rockwell Collins Inc. for the purchase of 3,614 defense advanced GPS receivers and accessories.

The receivers will provide DOD with a precise positioning system that is handheld, dual frequency and lightweight, and incorporates the next generation, tamper-resistant GPS selective-availability anti-spoofing module.

The receiver is a replacement for the precision lightweight GPS receiver in integrated platforms as well as for advanced and basic GPS systems.

Rockwell Collins is based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
