Rockwell Collins, a company associated with defense electronics applications, has introduced the Polaris(TM) family of Standard Positioning Service (SPS) Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers for the commercial market. The receivers offer the same functionality and ruggedness of the company's Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR) and Miniature Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver Engine (MPE) products, but without the selective availability anti- spoofing module (SAASM). The new products include Polaris Guide, a handheld receiver, and Polaris Link, an embeddable card. Both products incorporate the company's 12-channel, All-in- View SPS Course Acquisition (C/A) code module and are available for both military and commercial customers as well as to NATO and non-NATO countries.
