The GPS Directorate has approved three contracts to continue the military GPS user equipment (MGUE) development program for portable, ground-based receivers.

Contracts were let to the following companies: L-3 Communications Systems Co./Interstate Electronics Corp., Anaheim, California, $31,882,577, with work scheduled for completion by October 30, 2014; Rockwell Collins, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for a $30,894,212 cost-plus incentive fee contract, with work to be completed by October 28, 2014; Raytheon Co., El Segundo, California, $29,836,354, with completion by October 28, 2014.

Under an earlier modernized user equipment (MUE) program, the GPS program at the Space & Missile Systems Center (SMC), Los Angeles Air Force Base, California, has underwritten the three companies’ efforts to produce prototype M-code–capable GPS receiver cards, at a total cost of about $460 million.

In a related development, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, approved a $14-million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract with Honeywell International Inc., Clearwater, Florida, for engineering services to support the embedded GPS/Inertial Navigation System Program, with work expected to be completed by March 31, 2015.  The award supports an earlier contract for Global for EGI production units for a variety of platforms for the U.S. Army, Navy, and other foreign military requirements.
