DAYTON, Ohio, June 7 (UPI) -- Rockwell Collins has delivered 1,400 Remote Secure Receivers to the U.S. Air Force's Special Operations and Air Combat commands as part of a follow-on order, the company announced Monday.

That makes 1,800 total RSRs the company has delivered to the Air Force.

The RSR features the world's smallest, lowest power, secure and trusted military Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module GPS system, the company said.

The increased use of enemy jamming and spoofing, as well as troops' use of smartphones, tablets and military off-the-shelf devices, necessitates the need for greater system security, Rockwell said.

The RSR's plug-and-play capability can be tailored to meet the needs of individual troop configurations, the company said.

"This technology takes the mental and physical burden off soldiers by providing them with worry-free confidence that they can execute all of their operations without being spoofed or jammed," Mike Jones, vice president and general manager for Rockwell Collins' communication and navigation products, said in a statement.
