Rockwell Collins to launch NavHub navigation system with German Armed Forces

The German Ministry of Defence has chosen Rockwell Collins’ NavHub navigation system to provide Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) across a range of its military vehicles.

The NavHub system serves as a next-generation GNSS- and Military-Code (M-Code)-enabled solution for the German Armed Forces. Customisable for ground and maritime platforms, NavHub provides a variety of vehicle interfaces, meets the standards required by military vehicle operators, and allows users to receive data from multiple secure and open-service GNSS constellations to simultaneously confirm the navigational solution.

Access to multi-constellation GNSS and GPS M-Code will provide a significantly enhanced navigational solution over the current GPS-only solution.

The contracted work will be undertaken in Rockwell Collins’ facilities in in Europe.

Claude Alber, Vice President and Managing Director, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Rockwell Collins said: “Our military GNSS receivers will provide significantly enhanced navigational capabilities to military vehicles and will mitigate terrain, forest and urban degradation as it will raise the number of satellites used from 28 to well over 100.”
