BAE Systems’ GPS Receiver Program for Space Force Moves Past Design Review

BAE Systems has finished a critical design review for the Military GPS User Equipment Increment 2 Miniature Serial Interface program as part of a $247 million contract awarded by the U.S. Space Force.

The service branch seeks an M-Code GPS receiver with a next-generation, application-specific integrated circuit to enhance the device’s security and performance, BAE said

The NG ASIC technology is expected to be a component of the company’s future M-Code GPS receivers.

According to BAE, the MGUE Increment 2 capability is intended to enable assured positioning, navigation and timing for warfighters in degraded environments across domains while incorporating “multi-Global Navigation Satellite System robustness.”

Upon the schedule completion in 2025, the MSI GNSS receiver is meant to integrate easily into applications with low size, weight and power needs. BAE is working on the MGUE Increment 2 effort at its facility in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

In September, the company booked a potential five-year, $319 million contract to provide the U.S. Army with M-Code GPS receivers.
