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.
Over the past 60 years, General Dynamics has built communications systems and electronics for Apollo, Voyager and more than 400 other space missions. Today, our engineers are building on that legacy by designing systems for the Orion spacecraft which will take the next generation of astronauts to the Moon and Mars. Politico's Bryan Bender sat down with the Chris Brady, President of General Dynamics Mission Systems, at our Scottsdale, AZ facility — where the Apollo S-Band Transponder was built — to talk about the past and future of space communications.
Harnessing the power of quantum physics for communications and sensing first theorized by Albert Einstein in the 1930s will allow General Dynamics to offer revolutionary real-world applications that could render conventional secure systems obsolete within the next decade.
General Dynamics Celebrates the Past, Present and Future of Space Exploration on 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11
“One small step for man. One giant leap for mankind.” These immortal words from Neil Armstrong during his Moon landing were heard by more than 600 million people on Earth thanks to General Dynamics radios.
