The US Navy has awarded a contract to Raytheon for the global positioning system-based positioning, navigation and timing service (GPS-NTS) programme for its surface and subsurface platforms.
Under the $32.2m contract, the company will be responsible for the design, development, testing and delivery of GPNTS.
GPNTS has been designed to replace the current navigation sensor system interface, which supports mission-critical real-time positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) data services.
Raytheon’s open architecture solution will allow hosting of data in a common computing environment to enhance the ship’s operability with onboard systems.
