USAF Needs Industry Input on GPS Receiver for Joint Air to Surface Missile


The U.S. Air Force seeks market information on potential GPS receivers for the Joint Air to Surface Standoff Missile.

The service branch said Monday in a SAM notice it needs to develop a strategy for the procurement of an M-code GPS receiver under the JASSM program.

 According to the request for information notice, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center plans to purchase over 3K units of the receiver in the future and needs information on risks, technical approaches and scheduling factors associated with the GPS receiver's development and implementation.

Interested parties with the sought information may submit white papers through Dec. 30. The response should detail open, non-proprietary, standardized electrical and physical interfaces and include an evaluation of potential use of an open-systems architecture.

The Lockheed Martin-made JASSM allows for long-range, autonomous strikes against fixed and moving targets. F-16C/D, F-15E, B-1B, B-2A and B-52H aircraft can use JASSM.
