The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) has signed a supply and support contract with Collins Aerospace for the supply of NavHub-200 Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) navigation units to be installed on ground combat vehicles and maritime vessels.

This multi-year framework contract will provide NSPA GPS Support Partnership member nations (Canada, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, the UK and the US) with an easy and streamlined way to acquire new NavHub-200 units.

NavHub-200 is the next generation explosion resistant GPS receiver system strategically designed to meet demanding combat environments for both ground and maritime platforms, assuring long-term supportability of the system during future operations.

These next generation GNSS capabilities can be combined with inertial measuring units and sophisticated anti-jam antennas to provide reliable navigation and timing information in the most challenging and extreme environments.

The NavHUb devices were developed in the Collins Aerospace facility in Heidelberg in coordination with the Bundeswehr and have become the standard military GPS computer for vehicles in Germany and in many other international armed forces. In February 2020, the Bundeswehr received the first NavHub-200 unit and more than 1650 have been delivered.
