HARLOW, England, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Raytheon UK reports it has been contracted by Britain's Ministry of Defense for a new GPS Anti-Jam Antenna System for use by land vehicles.

The award was issued under an Urgent Operational Requirement. It is the first for the company's GPS Anti-Jam Land product family.

Delivery of the systems to the Defense Ministry will be completed within six months, Raytheon said.

"Raytheon UK has a track record of on-time delivery for GPS AJ systems, having delivered over 7,000 units for air and naval capabilities in the U.K. and U.S.," said Bob Delorge, chief executive, Raytheon UK.

"Many of the military platforms used in operations are protected by the proven Raytheon GPS anti-jam technology and the first order for our Land GPS AJ product family marks a significant success."
