Rockwell Collins
: 22 April, 2008  (Company News)
Rockwell Collins has announced that it has delivered 200,000 Defense Advanced Global Positioning System Receivers (DAGR) for use by U.S. and international warfighters, and has reached the 40,000 unit sales milestone for its Global Positioning System (GPS) engine for the U.S. Army's Ground Based GPS Receiver Application Module (GB-GRAM) program. The announcement took place at a recognition event with military officials and Rockwell Collins employees at the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.
'These milestones are significant because we have been able to provide the warfighter with tools that help save lives and increase effectiveness,' said Bruce King, vice president and general manager of Surface Solutions for Rockwell Collins. 'Everyone involved should take a great deal of pride in this accomplishment.'

DAGRBuilding upon the company's highly successful Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver (PLGR), the Rockwell Collins DAGR incorporates significantly more capabilities and functions than the PLGR while reducing the overall size, weight and power requirements. Rockwell Collins was selected for full-rate production of DAGRs in October 2003.

Primarily used by the U.S. Army, the DAGR is considered the handheld standard for GPS position, navigation and situational awareness. The receiver provides precise timing to synchronize tactical radios for the digital battlespace and includes a graphical user interface that greatly enhances the soldier's effectiveness and safety.

GB-GRAM is a NAVSTAR GPS Wing initiative to migrate towards an open system architecture for ground-based embedded military applications and is in communications and weapons platforms across the military.

Under the GB-GRAM contract, Rockwell Collins is providing its low cost 12-channel Miniature Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver (PLGR) Engine Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) (MPE-S), a small, lightweight, third generation GPS receiver. The MPE-S offers geolocation and precise positioning capabilities for military navigation, tactical communications, battlefield computing and other Command, Control, Communications, Computer and Information (C4I) equipment
