ITT Exelis Reports Significant Development in GPS Technology

ITT Exelis, a defense and information solutions company, has declared a major development in the field of GPS technology. By facilitating near real-time geolocation of intentional and unintentional GPS jamming sources via a network of sensors and sophisticated geolocation technology, IIT Exelis will become Exelis GPS Interference, Detection and Geolocation (IDG).

ITT Exelis announces new capability in GPS interference, detection and geolocation

IDG technology is built on a network of threat detection sensors that are connected to a centralized server that supports geolocation algorithms created by Exelis. These sensors can be installed in high-risk areas, including utility grids or airports for instant sensing and triangulating the location of the jamming source. For threat detection, users will receive actionable intelligence and pin-point geolocation information to respond.

A large number of GPS customers and users can take advantage of the Exelis solution. Jamming devices can transmit signals that can interrupt the regulation of a utility power grid, eventually posing threat to the infrastructure. When used in such environments, IDG can effectively detect, examine and geolocate the hostile signal, where intelligence is transmitted via a secure network for safe and reliable operation.

IDG has been constructed, leveraging the extended expertise of Exelis in the disciplines of GPS and PNT. Since four decades, Exelis payloads and payload components have been armed to GPS satellite. Now, Exelis has advanced to construct next-generation Global Positioning System, thereby creating and incorporating the navigation payloads for GPS III. Additionally, the company also offers key components of the system security design for the GPS Operational Control System (GPS OCX), precision monitor station receivers, and navigation processing components.
