L-3 Communications has been awarded an $8.5 million modification to the Military GPS User Equipment (MGUE) contract to accelerate the MGUE program. The goal is to speed delivery of upgraded, more powerful GPS receivers to warfighters.

L-3 Communications has been providing hardware for the Air Force in related contracts since 2012 for the GPS user equipment program, reports Defense Systems. The next phase of L-3’s project includes procurement of pre-prototype receiver card deliveries as well as test support activities. The receiver card deliveries will greatly increase the fielding of Military Code (M-code) capable GPS receivers to soldiers.

MGUE is a joint service program to develop a modernized set of military GPS receivers delivering improved capabilities to allow for accurate and reliable positioning, navigation, and timing service where current receiver performance might be compromised or unavailable.

Work will be performed in L-3 Communications’ Anaheim, California, location, with an expected completion date of Sept. 30, 2016. Fiscal 2015 research, development, test and evaluation funds in the amount of $1,814,560 are being obligated at the time of award.

The Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base, California, is the contracting activity.
