News

SYDNEY (Sep 2, 2021) – Collins Aerospace announced today the world’s first Military Underwater Navigation System with M-Code (MUNS-M), a handheld diver navigation system that provides the diver with precise position and includes secure anti-jamming capabilities during deep sea missions.

M-CODE is the military GPS signal required by the U.S. DOD for military operations, and is designed to enhance position, navigation and timing (PNT) capabilities and improve resistance to existing and emerging threats to GPS, such as jamming and spoofing. The MUNS-M solution was developed in partnership with Blue Print Subsea, a UK-based company that manufactures a range of handheld underwater navigation products to assist search-and-rescue and locate objects on the seabed.

“Military divers face dangerous, complex underwater navigation objectives that require precise positioning and secure anti-jamming capabilities,” said Adam Atkins, principal account manager, Mission Systems. “Our new MUNS-M system is specifically designed to meet the needs of the military diver community and perform in demanding combat environments.”
