US: Raytheon Company has received a $15.8 million contract order for its MAGR 2000-S24 miniaturised airborne GPS receiver. The order, which includes new production and sustainment of existing systems, is the first under an Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded to the company in September 2013 by the US Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center.
“With the increasingly sophisticated threats posed by potential enemy nations, our customers recognise Raytheon as the gold standard for highly secure, highly adaptable GPS receivers for the airborne military environment. Our innovative MAGR 2000-S24 design makes future unit replacement virtually unnecessary. Capability enhancements are as simple as swapping out the electronics module card, providing a highly cost-effective path for keeping fleets up-to-date with the latest GPS technology,” said Sharon Black, director of GPS and Navigation Systems for Raytheon”s Space and Airborne Systems business.
