Rockwell Collins (booth 1651) has launched the first operational real-time kinematic (RTK) selective availability anti-spoofing module (SAASM) technology solution for secure GPS receivers. Until now, military operations that required centimeter-level GPS navigation accuracy were based on commercial RTK GPS receivers.

However, with the Rockwell Collins RTK SAASM solution, unmanned aircraft systems can achieve centimeter-level relative navigation accuracy for autonomous capture, landing or other operations, while benefiting from the high-security features of the SAASM GPS receiver, says the company.

"This is the first RTK solution that is in compliance with the Office of the Secretary of Defense's mandate for the use of SAASM GPS receivers," says Dave Schreck, director of UAS and control technologies for Rockwell Collins.
