BAE Systems has received a $325.5 million contract from the US Defense Logistics Agency for advanced military code (M-Code) Global Positioning System (GPS) modules that will provide positioning, navigation, and timing data with anti-jamming and anti-spoofing capabilities.

The modules will help warfighters conduct operations in contested electronic warfare environments.

Under the multi-year contract, BAE Systems will deliver modernized GPS user equipment (MGUE) increment 1 common GPS modules (CGMs) compatible with the advanced M-Code signal to support the US Department of Defense and international allies through 2030. BAE Systems will manufacture the modules, manage their inventory on behalf of the Defense Logistics Agency, and use them to build military-grade GPS receivers for ground and precision-guided munitions.

“This contract will ensure the availability of M-Code module inventory to build advanced, next-generation GPS receivers,” said Greg Wild, director of Navigation and Sensor Systems at BAE Systems.

BAE Systems said its portfolio of M-Code GPS receivers included MPETM-M, the smallest M-Code solution on the market, and the NavStrikeTM-M GPS receiver for precision-guided munitions. Additional receivers from the company’s military GPS family are in development for transition to M-Code.
