French DGA Awards Thales Contract to Equip Mirage 2000Ds with GPS SAASM RreceiversNeuilly sur Seine - Thales has been awarded a contract to supply more than 100 of its GNSS 1000-S GPS receivers to upgrade France's fleet of Mirage 2000D aircraft within the framework of the French Army's Global Navigation Satellite System equipment renovation programme.
Thales GNSS 1000-S draws on SAASM (Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module) technology, which enables access to the military GPS encrypted signals. This technology also uses state-of-the-art signal processing, offering extended satellite-tracking capabilities in terms of precision, integrity, availability and jamming robustness in severe operational conditions.
