CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa. BAE Systems has won a contract worth $325.5 million with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to supply advanced Military Code (M-Code) GPS modules that will enable warfighters to conduct operations in contested electronic warfare (EW) environments.

Under the terms of the contract, BAE Systems will deliver Modernized GPS User Equipment (MGUE) Increment 1 Common GPS Modules (CGMs) -- which will give the users secure positioning, navigation, and timing data along with antijamming and antispoofing capabilities -- to support U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and international allies through 2030.

BAE Systems will manufacture the modules, manage inventory on behalf of the DLA, and use the modules to make military-grade GPS receivers for ground and precision-guided munitions.
