Raytheon GPS military system achieves 2,000th sale
by Staff Writers
El Segundo CA (SPX) Sep 27, 2013


The MAGR 2000 is the preferred system for the U.S. military and its allies.

Raytheon has delivered its 2,000th Miniaturized Airborne GPS Receiver (MAGR) 2000. Three variants of the MAGR 2000 family of products are currently in service aboard 20 types of fixed-wing and rotary-wing platforms across 16 countries, with a well-established record of excellent performance and reliability.

The current MAGR 2000-S24 greatly improves navigation accuracy and integrity compared with legacy systems, while providing increased resistance to interference and jamming through incorporation of Selective Availability and Anti-Spoofing Module technology.

The open architecture and flexible design of the MAGR 2000-S24 allows for easy insertion of future GPS modernization enhancements, such as the new Military code (M-code) signal, without having to replace the unit itself.

"The MAGR 2000 is the preferred system for the U.S. military and its allies in Europe, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific region," said Sharon Black, director of GPS and Navigation Systems for Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business.

"It represents the affordable path for acquiring and staying current with all GPS technology advancements envisioned for the next 15 years."

Raytheon is also under contract with the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center to develop preliminary designs and conduct pre-Engineering and Manufacturing Development risk reduction for a common set of M-code capable GPS receiver products.

Next-generation M-code technology is required to provide significantly improved position/navigation/time performance against current and emerging threats, with an expected fielding in 2017-18.
