Posted By: Jane Edwardson: In: News, Products & Service

Mayflower Communications has received a subcontract from a Lockheed Martin subsidiary to supply antenna systems in support of GPS anti-jam capability upgrade work on the U.S. Navy’s submarines.


Mayflower said Nov. 1 it will integrate its Submarine Anti-Jam GPS Enhancement NavGuard 501 platform with the service branch’s Multifunction Mast Antenna System (OE-538B) through the contract with Lockheed Martin Sippican.

The SAGE (NavGuard 501) antenna system is designed to transmit GPS signals to multiple receivers and works with M-codeSAASM P(Y) and C/A receivers.

A joint venture of Lockheed Martin Sippican and Granite State Manufacturing secured a sole-source contract from the military branch’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command to update the antenna mast system aboard the Navy’s fleet of submarines in an effort to facilitate communications and address navigation warfare requirements.
