A Navy official has detailed the service branch’s plans for new positioning, navigation and timing platforms to counter threats posed by GPS jammers in an interview with C4ISR & Networks published Wednesday.

Capt. Mark Glover, program manager for the Navy’s Communications and GPS Navigation Program Office, told the publication the Navy’s PMW/A-170 has initiated efforts to combine GPS navigation tools with inertial navigation platforms due to the capability of both systems to collaboratively work during a GPS outage.

Glover also cited the M-code platform as part of the service branch’s GPS modernization efforts in the interview with Barry Rosenberg.

M-code is designed to protect GPS signal through the use of wide-angle and directional antennas to transmit GPS III satellite-based M-code signals, Glover said.
