Raytheon UK receives first order for its latest GPS Anti-Jam prototype

Raytheon UK has taken its first order for a pre-production MiniGAS, the latest in GPS Anti-Jam technology, designed and manufactured by the company in the United Kingdom.

This contract, awarded by an undisclosed customer, requires Raytheon UK to produce demonstrator units for customer evaluation.

MiniGAS is the latest in Raytheon’s GPS Anti-Jam family of products, and it aims to be the lightest and smallest GPS Anti-Jamming system produced by Raytheon UK. It will have flexible form factors, suited to land, unmanned aerial vehicles and missile platforms. Raytheon is also producing demonstration units of its Landshield high performance digital Anti-Jam product for customer evaluation.

As well as developing new products, Raytheon has also received an order for a further 100 of its Advanced Digital Antenna Production systems with the U.S. government. To date, more than 500 ADAP systems and more than 6,600 GAS-1 systems have been delivered to the U.S. government and other international customers over the course of 15 years.

Richard Daniel, defense director for Raytheon UK, said: “Raytheon UK is a world leader in the production and supply of GPS Anti-Jamming systems to the majority of the world’s military forces. These contracts and milestones demonstrate that we continue to make advancements in new systems, ensuring that Raytheon’s systems continue to meet the latest platform requirements.”

Raytheon continues to deliver GPS Anti-Jam systems to Northrop Grumman Italia to be used in the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft, and the company has also delivered a significant number of systems for the Airbus Military A400M aircraft. The company also completed the delivery of its first order for its latest GPS Anti-Jam Land product to the UK Ministry of Defence within six months of contract award.
