BAE Systems finalises purchase of military GPS business

BAE Systems has completed its acquisition of the Collins Aerospace Military GPS business from Raytheon Technologies.

First announced in January, the acquisition will augment BAE Systems’ Electronic Systems portfolio through the addition of GPS anti-jamming and anti-spoofing technology.

With a workforce of approximately 700 employees, the military GPS business has a global installed base of over 1.5 million devices on more than 280 airborne, ground and weapon system platforms.

The business designs and manufactures hardened and secure GPS products with a range of form factors, including products designed for space-constrained and harsh environments.

It is also developing next-generation GPS technologies for the US military — including M-Code — that will further improve security and anti-jamming capabilities.
