CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa. Neya Systems and Northrop Grumman officials ordered up to 2,000 of Rockwell Collins? MicroGram GPS receivers. Engineers will integrate the receivers into Neya?s Autonomous Behavior Capability Module, in support of Increment 1 of the Naval Surface Warfare Center?s Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robotic System (AEODRS).

MicroGRAM is a SAASM-based GPS receiver that enables military micro-users, who require secure Position, Navigation & Timing (PNT) to comply with Department of Defense (DoD) policy that all combat support systems use SAASM-based GPS devices.

The Navy leads the AEODRS program, which aims at developing a family of explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) robotics. Officials say that Increment 1 will be the first of three that will be fielded.
