GPS Source announced today that GLI-FLO has been granted Security Approval by the USAF Global Positioning Systems Directorate. GLI-FLO meets the stringent requirements for reliability and security by integrating a GPS Directorate-approved SAASM receiver (Selective Availability/Anti-Spoofing Module). SAASM is the security architecture selected by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) to provide current security functions for GPS authorized military users.
Robert Horton, CEO of GPS Source, said that “We understand the importance of reliable GPS/PNT Data for synchronizing military operations and the need to protect against jamming and/or spoofing. We further realize the importance of protecting our national assets by designing products that fully comply with all GPS Directorate security requirements. This security approval makes it possible for our GLI-FLO to be deployed by military forces without reservation." Mr. Horton commented further, “The GPS Directorate security approval provides GPS source the opportunity to supply our military end-users and prime contractors with what they need, a DAGR Distributed Device (D3) that meets the mandate for reliability and security.”
In addition to the SAASM compliance, other GLI-FLO features include the ability to serve ICD-GPS-153 PNT data simultaneously to multiple communications or weapon systems that require secure GPS information. It is a significant step for GPS Source toward VICTORY compliance in GPS Signal Distribution (Single PNT Distribution Point). With zero impact to subscriber application software/hardware, it removes the need to rely on multiple, expensive GB-GRAMS found in military platforms.
