TAG[R]), in cooperation with ITT Exelis[R], announced today the successful completion of its highly-integrated Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) system, providing centimeter-level positioning accuracy, based solely on high-precision carrier-phase measurements from its embedded GPS receiver with fully-certified Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) technology.
This plan includes the modernization of current user equipment which relies on the Selective Availability, Anti-spoofing Module security architecture, migration to Military Global Positioning System User Equipment, and the use of advanced antennae technology and micro- electromechanical inertial measurement units to provide assured PNT where space based or other radio frequency emitters fall short.
