CHARLOTTE, N.C. Collins Aerospace launched the world’s first Military Underwater Navigation System with M-Code (MUNS-M), a handheld diver navigation system that is designed to provide 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. Department of Defense 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.
According to the company, the MUNS-M solution was developed in partnership with Blue Print Subsea, a U.K.-based company that manufactures a range of handheld underwater navigation products to assist search-and-rescue and locate objects on the seabed.
