Satellite GPS Receivers
Providing Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers to U.S. military and civilian customers for almost 30 years
Our high-reliability, space-hardened global positioning system (GPS) receivers have delivered more than 140 on-orbit years of service beginning with the Monarch family of GPS receivers. Today, our GPS receivers deliver the most advanced M-code technology for Precise Positioning Service position, velocity, and time information for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) applications.
Sentinel M-Code Receiver
General Dynamics’ Sentinel™ M-Code GPS Receiver provides Precise Positioning Service position, velocity, and time information for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) applications. Performance and satellite visibility are enhanced through the use of dual antennas; each of the 64 GPS channels can be assigned to either antenna.
The Next Generation of Secure Position, Navigation and Timing Technology Whitepaper
The Department of Defense is now focused on satisfying the need to provide assured position, navigation and timing (PNT) – or assured PNT – and General Dynamics is answering that call by developing new antenna designs, power amplifiers, receivers, waveform generators, and related capabilities that are more resilient to threats.
Two General Dynamics Small Deep Space Transponders and a power amplifier will help NASA’s Perseverance Rover explore Mars. The transponders are the rover’s communications link to NASA, transmitting data and images over 100 million miles back to Earth.
Each year, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) recognizes their top performing employees and partners with their Agency Honor Awards. This year, two General Dynamics Mission Systems employees were awarded much deserved medals.
Over the course of more than 20 years of operating, maintaining and sustaining satellite communication systems, I have witnessed unnecessary challenges as sustainment was an afterthought and not factored in early on. Coupling sustainment with the enterprise operations and maintenance design is impe…
