Combined solution
IAI-Honeywell to jointly develop GPS anti-jam navigation system

Modern navigation, communications, and intelligence collection and electronic warfare systems integrated in modern platforms, rely on the uninterrupted availability of satellite-based navigation and timing for their operation. Despite this dependency, still many platforms do not use Anti-Jamming systems to protect those essential assets. Remaining exposed, even low-power jammers can disrupt or even deny the operation of Global Navigation Satellite Systems, thus degrading the platform's capability to fulfill its mission.

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), and Honeywell Aerospace have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to jointly develop an advanced GPS Anti-Jam navigation system. As part of the MOU, IAI and Honeywell are aiming to engineer, manufacture and market a combined GPS Anti-Jam combined solution.

The new technology will combine IAI's existing ADA GPS Anti-Jamming system together with Honeywell's embedded GPS Inertial Navigation System. The ADA system will be integrated as a subsystem, or as an embedded module into Honeywell's navigation systems.

The joint solution is applicable to military navigation applications (SAASM / P(Y) Code) and has the provisioning to support future directives of the GPS directorate (M-Code).
