Exelis has upgraded the control software for the new Global Positioning System Next Generation Operational Control System for the GPS III system. Integration and testing were conducted on version 1.5 of the OCX navigation, encryption and Mission Upload Generator software.

Exelis performed the work on behalf of Raytheon, which is building GPS OCX. Exelis is also providing encryptors, high-precision receivers for GPS III ground monitoring stations, and simulators for sending test signals to GPS III satellites.

“These software milestones demonstrate a clear path to improved GPS accuracy and integrity,” said Drew Trainor, OCX program manager for Exelis Geospatial Systems. “Civilian and military users will have more accurate and secure GPS signals, and these milestones bring us one step closer to GPS modernization.”
