AUSTIN, Texas, 18 April 2008.BAE Systems has developed a satellite navigation receiver system designed to provide uninterrupted operation of the global positioning system for air, land, and sea platforms and applications.

The company developed and readied the system in response to the emerging threat of disruption to operations of GPS navigation systems. The new satellite navigational immune receiver ensures operable navigation in the presence of radio-requency jamming.

"GPS jamming has become an acute threat to armed forces operating in the modern battle arena," says Kent Jacobson, vice president of BAE Systems' Sensor Integration business in Austin. "BAE Systems developed a unique system that offers operational immunity against electronic jamming and disruptions to maintain precise and reliable GPS operation, even in multiple jamming environments."

During tests of the system, the anti-jam GPS overcame electronic jamming in various scenarios, including multiple simultaneous jamming.
