Vulcano 127-millimeter artillery shell

Rockwell Collins is integrating its NavFire Precision Positioning Service (PPS) GPS into Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s VULCANO naval and artillery weapons systems.  Rockwell says it customized the NavFire receivers for the customer’s ammunition and provided support during testing.
 
Vulcano is a family of unguided (BER) and guided (GLR) ammunition for the 76- and 127-millimeter naval guns and 155-millimeter land artillery systems built by Leonardo, an Italian company known as Finmeccanica until its renaming earlier this year.

A derivative of the 12-channel NavFire PPS receiver, Rockwell Collins’ Navstrike military receiver features a GPS/inertial navigation system (INS) and Selective Availability/Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) to allow decryption of precision GPS observations through over-the-air rekeying.
