Rockwell Collins has launched a stamp-sized MicroGRAM device, the Real Time Kinematic (RTK) Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) technology that can provide precise and secure GPS technology.
The Rockwell Collins SAASM GPS is a single, tamper-resistant multi-chip security module that can be combined with other components and software into a complete GPS receiver. It is implemented on the smallest and lowest power MPE-S Type 2 device.
With the Rockwell Collins RTK SAASM technology solution, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)device can achieve centimeter-level relative navigation accuracy for autonomous capture, landing, or other operations, benefiting from the high-security features of the SAASM GPS receiver.
The RTK SAASM solution also enables cost-effective solutions for many other applications including targeting and north-finding applications.
Dave Schreck, director of UAS and Control Technologies for Rockwell Collins, said, “This is the first RTK solution that is in compliance with the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s mandate for the use of SAASM GPS receivers”.
