ITT Exelis to provide anti-jam GPS antennas for Canadian 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
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.
