Mounted Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing System (MAPS) Gen II

APNT access with the highest level of trust

Warfighters require precision and accuracy to execute their missions, which becomes more difficult when GPS is compromised. Collins Aerospace’s next-generation mounted APNT solution, also known as Mounted Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing System (MAPS) Gen II, maintains the integrity of positioning and timing in GPS-contested environments and keeps up with the pace of current and future enemy threats and technologies. To reduce vehicle system changes, Collins Aerospace also uses a smart, two Line-Replaceable-Unit (LRU) system that cleanly replaces the existing navigation system in the vehicle for easier upgrade and sustainability.

The MAPS Gen II system

Comprised of Collins Aerospace's NavHub™-100 navigation system and Multi-Sensor Antenna System (MSAS-100), the new MAPS Gen II solution brings heightened protection levels against the evolving GPS threats to support multi-domain operations and mitigate the evolving electronic threats that warfighters are facing today. New benefits of our system include Military Code (M-Code) capability and improved levels of reliability through patented Modernized Signal Tracking (MST) that enhances GPS integrity.
