GPS and GNSS are the primary sources for essential positioning navigation and timing for tactical missions. Yet satellite-based data is increasingly vulnerable to disruption from both natural causes such as buildings, canyons, and mountains, and electronic jamming by enemies putting the mission at risk. Even the temporary loss of GPS for position and navigation on the digital battlefield creates a high level of uncertainty for land forces, putting critical missions and the safety of U.S. and allied forces at risk.
Recognizing these threats and building on decades of expertise, EMCORE’s TACNAV products are effective, accurate, and unjammable position and navigation systems that deliver low-cost, low-risk, immediate solutions to GPS denial and jamming.
