Raytheon Intelligence & Space delivers 3,000th GPS Receiver

Raytheon Intelligence & Space delivered its 3,000th Miniaturized Airborne GPS Receiver (MAGR) 2000-S24 system to the U.S. Air Force recently. The MAGR2K is a secure, resilient GPS receiver that enables the warfighter to navigate the battlespace with protection against interference and jamming.

The MAGR2K is an upgrade to the legacy miniaturized airborne GPS receivers and is currently in service aboard 20 types of fixed-wing and rotary-wing platforms from Department of Defense and foreign military sales customers.

“In the battlespace, disruptions to navigation are not an option,” said Eric Ditmars, vice president of Secure Sensor Solutions at RI&S. “Our MAGR2K GPS receivers enhance GPS acquisition and performance ensuring military forces reliable and assured GPS data they can act on. Delivery of the 3,000th unit is a significant milestone for our team.”

Raytheon Intelligence & Space continues to upgrade the MAGR2K technology to stay current with the evolving battlespace. Development is underway for the MAGR-2K-M, which uses the company’s M-Code technology. The first production readiness units are currently undergoing platform integration on the U.S. Air Force’s B-2 platform.
