NovAtel Inc. today (May 30, 2012) announced the development of their OEM625S Selective Availability/Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) GNSS receiver, the first product emerging from a collaborative effort with L-3 Interstate Electronics Corporation (IEC).

The OEM625S, which becomes available for purchase in the third quarter of this year, will combine a commercial dual-frequency NovAtel GNSS receiver with an L-3 IEC XFACTOR SAASM in a single card solution, reducing overall size and power requirements for end customer applications.

The OEM625S retains NovAtel’s OEMV-2 form factor and a well-established set of software commands, facilitating drop-in replacement and backward compatibility for existing customers. Integrators can continue to use their existing user interface, which will be enhanced with OEM625S logs and commands for SAASM functionality.

The SAASM position is provided via a dedicated communication port, as well as through NovAtel’s software command protocol, to increase flexibility in system integration.

“For the past 17 years NovAtel’s customers have enjoyed great success in integrating our OEM family of high-precision receivers into a wide array of defense applications,” stated Graham Purves, executive vice-president of NovAtel. “Adding the L-3 XFACTOR SAASM to our receiver card will allow defense customers to continue to use our products in the most demanding military environments.

Ric Pozo, General Manager of L-3 IEC’s Navigation Systems business unit, said of the OEM625S’s development, "We are pleased to collaborate with NovAtel and provide the warfighter this highly flexible and capable GPS SAASM product. Our combined teams are looking forward to bringing this one-of-a-kind solution to market."
