USAF GPS Directorate Grants Orolia's VersaPNT and VersaSync SAASM Security Approval

Huntsville, AL – March 26, 2018 – Orolia, through its Spectracom brand, a global leader in assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) solutions, today announced that it has been granted GPS Directorate Security approval to incorporate a military grade Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) based GPS receiver into its VersaPNT and VersaSync products. The integrated SAASM module adheres to industry standards allowing for a migration path to GPS Military Code (M-Code) support.

VersaPNT and VersaSync are part of Orolia’s Rugged PNT platform for military environments, which provides virtually fail-safe continuity of operations, even in GPS-denied environments. The Versa products, which are Ideal for mobile ground, air or sea requirements, provide secure tactical mobile PNT infrastructure in a ruggedized, compact, low power, lightweight, easily-integrated form factor to enable continuity of operation in evolving electronic warfare environments.

Today, military vehicles are portable networks, providing seamless connections with U.S. headquarters, regional command posts and individual soldiers. Remote areas are challenging environments for military networks, and enemy forces are jamming, spoofing and disrupting operations with increasing sophistication.

“U.S. Armed forces require the highest level of security for mission-critical data and infrastructure without interruption or interference,” said Rohit Braggs, Orolia vice president of PNT Networks and Sources. “VersaPNT SAASM and VersaSync SAASM ensure that fielded GPS systems have that ultra level of security to provide continuous mission assurance and C4ISR support, even in hostile environments. For Orolia, Assured PNT is not in development; it is a proven innovative technology ready to deploy for complex military and homeland security ground, air and sea operations,” he said.

VersaPNT and VersaSync provide essential command and control, navigation, communication, and electronic intelligence support for U.S. and allied military, homeland security, first responder, civilian agency, special operations, and intelligence missions. Demonstrations of the VersaPNT are available at the AUSA Global Force Symposium & Exposition, Orolia Booth #337.
