HARLOW, England, March 2 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force has contracted Raytheon Systems Ltd. for the delivery of a navigation system interference protection technology.

Raytheon was contracted to provide the Air Force with its Global Positioning System Advanced Digital Antenna Production system. Under the $1.4 million Air Force Global Positioning Systems Wing award, Raytheon will deliver its ADAP systems to equip surface platforms and fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft for the U.S. Navy.

Officials say the ADAP, a next-generation version of the GAS-1 GPS antenna system, is designed to protect the GPS-based navigation technologies from jamming and interference.

"We have just had our best year ever for our GPS anti-jam product line," Jim Trail, Raytheon Systems Ltd. chief operating officer, said in a statement.

"This is a growing part of the business, as demonstrated by the increased demand ... for our new, more advanced ADAP product by the U.S. government."
