Abstract

Data Fusion Corporation (DFC) and The Boeing Company propose the development of a prototype real-time next-generation GPS receiver that is tolerant to constructive interference, jamming and spoofing for use with precision-guided munitions, particularly those associated with UCAV scenarios. Continuous GPS availability is assumed in many of today's commercial products, as well as navigation and transportation systems. Since 9/11, the possibility of terrorists affecting GPS availability has become a real possibility. DFC's proposed GPS system has the capability to maintain robust naviagational performance in the presence of spoofing and meaconing interference., thereby helping civilian transportation systems (land, sea and air) continue to operate despite such such terrorist interference. Moreover, landing systems using pseudolites will benefit greatly.
