BAE Systems has unveiled NavStorm-M, a gun-hardened integrated anti-jamming and Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver for artillery, missiles, and unmanned systems. 

NavStorm-M features a layered protection approach using beamforming, anti-spoofing, resiliency, and software assurance. It is a next-generation Assured-Positioning, Navigation and Timing (A-PNT) device featuring M-Code GPS technology that supports warfighters through successful mission completion.

The capability is designed to meet the tight size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) requirements of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), loitering munitions, hypersonic platforms, and other weapons – especially in gun-hardened applications. NavStorm-M delivers precise GPS navigation as a stand-alone system or when integrated with an inertial navigation system.

Doug Lloyd, Director of Weapon Systems for GPS at BAE Systems, said; “With the introduction of the compact and highly jam- and spoof-resistant NavStorm-M, our team now provides advanced, cost-effective solutions for everyone in the M-Code space. Our broad portfolio allows us to solve our customers’ problems in a way that is scaled to specific SWaP-C and performance requirements.”

Production of NavStorm-M will take place at BAE Systems’ 278,000-square-foot engineering and manufacturing center of excellence in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
