Whether aloft in the skies aboard a fighter jet protecting the skies or an airborne surveillance platform monitoring developments on the ground, our Secure Sensor Solutions mission area is responsible for providing advanced capabilities for multiple types of tactical aircraft and other platforms. We provide the most advanced systems to navigate in challenging environments, and identify and discriminate friendly and foe objects.

Part of Space and Airborne Systems business, S3 provides capabilities that enable critical tasks---from target identification, aircraft navigation, and target engagement.

With our systems, warfighters know where they are going and what they are going to do when they get there.

The Resilient Navigation Systems product line is responsible for providing U.S. and coalition forces with accurate GPS navigation capability to successfully achieve their missions___free of disruption and jamming. GNS solutions equip manned aircraft, unmanned systems, precision weapons, and ground systems.
These products include anti-jam systems, integrated GPS/INS navigators, high performance Selective Availability Anti-Spoof Module (SAASM) receivers, and Military Code (M-Code) receivers.
