ITT Exelis to Provide Anti-Jam GPS Antennas for Canadian Military Platforms

ITT Exelis (NYSE: XLS) has been selected by Raytheon UK and the Canadian Department of National Defence to provide anti-jam GPS antenna arrays for several Canadian airborne military platforms.

The N79 Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA), which will be used on fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, prevents deliberate jamming and unintentional interference of timing signals when integrated with anti-jam GPS systems such as the Raytheon Navshield system.

“Constant GPS reception is extremely important to our fighting forces and those of our allies. The N79 anti-jam antenna will help ensure GPS availability to our service members at the most critical times,” said Paul Eyring, senior director of programs for antennas, sensors and microelectronics for Exelis Electronic Systems. “By mitigating electronic interference with GPS signals, the Exelis CRPA helps ensure that aircrews receive the accurate navigation data they need to complete their mission.”

The seven-element antenna enables warfighters to maintain accurate timing and to navigate closer to their targets in the presence of up to six interference sources. Exelis has been producing the anti-jam GPS antenna in its integrated design and production facility in Bohemia, N.Y., since 2005.
