Collins Aerospace is Now Taking Orders for its M-Code Based GPS Receiver

Collins Aerospace has started taking orders for the latest-generation of its m-Code based GPS receiver. The Miniature PLGR Engine - M-Code (MPE-M) GPS receiver will be available in 2020 and is one of the smallest, lightest and low power ground receivers available and incorporates the company’s recently certified Common GPS Module (CGM).

As a drop-in replacement for the thousands of customers using Collins’ Miniature PLGR Engine-SAASM (MPE-S) GPS receiver, the new MPE-M technology provides ten-times stronger anti-jamming capabilities for the direct acquisition of GPS signals than its predecessor. The MPE-M is capable of receiving the current military Y-Code GPS signal along with the newer Military Code (M-Code) signal. For all GPS signals, the MPE-M provides warfighters improved security, assured positioning and it satisfies the U.S. government’s requirement for all military GPS equipment to be M-Code capable. 

Collins Aerospace is currently the only military GPS receiver provider that manufactures its products in house, assuring control over quality and delivery schedules. The MPE-M’s security certification also makes the receiver eligible for export to U.S. allies through the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program. For more information, click here.
