Secure, jam-resistant GPS receivers for tactical radios are being provided to Harris Corporation by Rockkwell Collins. Rockwell Collins said Harris has ordered 5,000 of its MicroGRAM system, the largest annual purchase it has received for the system. The Micrograms are being delivered over a period of three years. "MicroGRAM enables Harris Corporation to meet military customer demands for embedded, secure GPS," said Mike Jones, vice president and general manager of Communication and Navigation Products for Rockwell Collins. "MicroGRAM protects warfighters from the growing jamming and spoofing threats on the battlefield, while enhancing survivability and mission success."
