DAGR GPS Rockwell Collins Inc. Government Systems in Cedar Rapids, IA received an $82.7 million firm-fixed-price and cost-plus-fixed fee contract modification, exercising production options for the purchase of 37,787 defense advanced GPS receivers (DAGRs) and accessories. The DAGR provides GPS services in a hand-held, dual-frequency (L1/L2), lightweight receiver weighing less than one pound. Key features include a precise positioning system (PPS), as well as next generation tamper-resistant GPS via the selective availability anti-spoofing module (SASSM) security module. The DAGR replaces the Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver (PLGR) in integrated platforms as well as for the advanced and basic GPS user. Based on publicized contracts to date and Rockwell Collins figures, DID estimates that the USA and various allies around the world have issued almost $300 million worth of DAGR contracts to date, and ordered almost 125,000 systems. Work will be complete October 2008. The Headquarters Global Positioning Systems Wing at Los Angeles Air Force Base, CA issued the contract (F04701-02-C-0011/P00050).
