Receiver, GPS, 5-channel
This receiver provides military air crews with precise position, velocity and time information, by receiving signals from the constellation of Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites. It was among the first to be deployed in place of more traditional navigation instruments, after the GPS constellation of satellites became operational in the early 1990s.
The receiver was designed and built by the Collins Division of Rockwell International for onboard use in Air Force and Navy aircraft, and for aircraft used by NATO allies.
