Boeing selects Rockwell Collins micro-GPS receivers for search and rescue radio system

Boeing has selected Rockwell Collins to provide its industry leading micro-GPS receivers for the Combat Survivor Evader Locator (CSEL) radio system.

CSEL is the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Program of Record for Joint Search and Rescue. This fully qualified, next-generation survival radio system provides a survivor/evader with precision Global Positioning System (GPS) based geoposition and navigation data, over-the-horizon communication relays, line-of-sight voice communication and beacon capabilities. Today, CSEL is in full-rate production and providing global coverage for U.S. DoD forces worldwide.


“Rockwell Collins is an industry leader in providing anti-spoof, anti-jam, micro-GPS solutions for military users,” said Mike Jones, vice president and general manager of Communication and Navigation Products for Rockwell Collins. “We’ve built a strong relationship with Boeing over the years and we believe our micro-GPS receivers will provide unmatched capability for the CSEL program.”

As part of the program, Rockwell Collins is providing its next generation military SAASM (Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module) GPS, which allows decryption of precision GPS coordinates. This device is the smallest, lightest and lowest power-consuming SAASM GPS available today. It enables the creation of GPS receivers that provide significant size, weight and power reduction for military systems in use around the world.

More than 35 years ago, Rockwell Collins assisted the U.S. Air Force in developing GPS technology and that legacy continued when the company created the world’s first all-digital miniature GPS receiver under contract with DARPA. Over the years, Rockwell Collins has produced more than 50 GPS products and delivered more than 1 million GPS receivers for commercial avionics and government applications. The micro-GPS technology being provided for the CSEL program will continue this legacy of providing leading edge GPS solutions.
