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.
