INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR DEFENCE AND SECURITY

Drumgrange Naval GPS (Navfix) accepted into Service by the Royal Navy

Drumgrange is pleased to announce that the Navfix military GPS System has successfully completed the Naval Weapons Sea Test (NWST) on a Royal Navy (RN) warship.

The sea trial was conducted with a team of personnel from the Royal Navy, Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S), the Maritime Commissioning and Test Authority (MCTA) and Drumgrange.

This important milestone marks the completion of the Initial Operating Capability (IOC) and gives authority to proceed with installation across the fleet of warships and submarines to be fitted with Navfix.

The Navfix Contract was awarded by the Communications and Situational Awareness (CSA) team in DE&S to provide a direct replacement for the legacy GPS Receivers. The new system incorporates the latest SAASM military GPS receiver technology and interfaces to the platforms’ existing navigation and combat systems. Drumgrange’s solution also includes additional network interfaces for integration to emerging open architecture Combat and Platform Management Systems.
