Modern navigation, communications, and intelligence collection and electronic warfare systems integrated in modern platforms, rely on the uninterrupted availability of satellite-based navigation and timing for their operation. Despite this dependency, most platforms do not use any counter-measure systems to protect those essential assets. Remaining exposed, even low-power jammers can disrupt or even deny the operation of GNSS systems, thus degrading the platform’s capability to fulfill its mission.
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), and Honeywell Aerospace, have signed a Teaming Agreement (TA) to introduce the market of airborne avionics with a jointly developed turnkey GPS Anti-Jam navigation system.
According to IAI announcement, the joint product integrates the company’s GPS Anti-Jam system with Honeywell’s navigation products, as a subsystem or as an embedded solution.
Upon successful development, IAI’s GPS anti-jamming system the ADA, an advanced system that protects avionic systems from GPS jamming, will be embedded into Honeywell’s Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System (EGI).
The GPS Anti-Jam Navigation System has been sold to a number of customers and is already operational.
IAI stated that the joint product will provide end users with the required features to optimize the operational capabilities of their assets.
