CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, 16 Feb. 2006. U.S. Air Force officials are buying an additional 25,000 Defense Advanced GPS Receivers (DAGRs) and accessories from the Rockwell Collins Inc. Government Systems segment in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, under terms of a $58.6 million contract modification awarded Feb. 15.

The Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center in Los Angeles is exercising production options for Rockwell Collins DAGRs, which gives authorized users precise positioning information based on the handheld unit's proximity to a constellation of orbiting Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites.

DAGR is a precise positioning system, hand-held, dual-frequency (L1/L2), receiver that weighs less than one pound. The unit incorporates the nest generation, tamper-resistant GPS selective-availability anti-spoofing module, or SAASM, security module, and replaces the Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver (PLGR) in integrated platforms as well as the advanced and basic GPS user.

This effort supports foreign military sales to Canada, France, Germany, Korea, Portugal, and Hungary. Work will be complete by April 2007. The contract number is F04701-02-C-0011/P00036.
