WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, OHIO – Under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, the Air Force Institute of Technology and the Locata Corporation delivered a highly accurate navigation system that performs in wide-area GPS jamming environments caused by electronic warfare.
The 746th Test Squadron at Holloman AFB, New Mexico, required a highly accurate navigation system for testing methods developed for overcoming GPS jamming, or electronic warfare. This system is tested on equipment, such as aircraft or land-based vehicles that are used in locations where electronic warfare prevents the warfighter from using GPS in battle. The Locata Corporation, headquartered in Canberra, Australia, developed a commercially-available network system that provided highly accurate, terrestrial position, navigation and time, or PNT solutions in environments with or without GPS.
