Engineers at Interstate Electronics Corp. are offering a SEM-E single-board global positioning system (GPS) called GRAM - short for GPS Receiver Applications Module - that can implement direct GPS Y-code acquisition in six seconds or less. The receiver tracks all satellites in view and has the Motorola Sharpshooter chip, which provides selective availability, antispoofing processing, and unclassified programming. The module takes information from one or two antennas through one input port, which can speed satellite fixes. GRAM is for smart weapons, aircraft, and ground vehicles, and can withstand severe shock and other harsh environmental conditions.
