Raytheon Receives Exelis Encryptors for GPS OCX

SatelliteTYSONS CORNER, VA April 17, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — Exelis (NYSE: XLS) has turned over six upgraded ground encryptors to Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) for insertion into the GPS OCX as part of the U.S. Air Force GPS modernization initiative, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.

Exelis said Wednesday the subcontract work also includes encryptors for testing and OCX navigation software.

“Some of today’s GPS satellites can broadcast M-code signals, but unlike GPS OCX, the current control segment cannot bring M-code online, ” said Joe Rambala, Exelis vice president and general manager of positioning, navigation and timing.

“The encryptors will be enablers for M-code processing to improve the overall GPS program and its security.”
