At Eurosatory 2022, Collins Aerospace introduced its new NavHub-200M, the first non-ITAR vehicular navigation system for the international market compatible with Military Code (M-Code) receiver technology.

NavHub-200M’s improved message formats and signal modulation techniques will ensure faster and more accurate performance for ground vehicles on the connected battlespace.

NavHub-200M provides Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing (APNT) capabilities while improving overall resistance to existing and emerging threats to Global Positioning Systems (GPS), such as jamming and spoofing.

“With GPS-based Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) receivers set to become obsolete, it is critical that M-Code receiver technology is made available to ground forces around the world as quickly as possible so they can trust that the signals they receive in a fast-moving, hostile environment are accurate and actionable,” said Ryan Bunge, vice president and general manager, Communication, Navigation and Guidance Solutions for Collins Aerospace. “Our NavHub-200M provides an improved resistance to jamming and interference, as well as advanced security features to prevent unauthorized access or exploitation.”

NavHub-200M also includes the open interface standards and sensor fusion capabilities required for a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) upgrade path, such as that for Europe’s Galileo constellation, as well as interfacing with key vehicle sensors such as the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and odometer, among others.

Attendees at Eurosatory can learn more by visiting the company at booth number C523.
