L-3's Military Code (M-Code) GPS has received government security certification.

The certification was awarded under the Air Force Military GPS User Equipment program, which is led by the Space and Missile Systems Center's GPS Directorate.

M-Code GPS features improved anti-jamming technology and the ability to operate in contested environments.

"We are pleased to be the first [Department of Defense] contractor to complete security certification for our new M-Code GPS User Equipment,” L-3 CEO Michael Strianese said in a company news release. “L-3 is ahead of the technology curve, and we are delivering critical innovations that have significant applications inside DoD markets and on several U.S. Army initiatives."

The certification review was performed by an independent government review team, with a focus on the security design of the L-3 GPS User Equipment.

The goal of these new security standards is to further protect the integrity of the navigation and timing solutions and provide required safeguards for critical information inside GPS User Equipment.

Work on this project will be done by L-3 Interstate Electronics Corporation, which is part of the Precision Engagement & Training sector within L-3’s Electronic Systems business segment.
