The new modules and receivers will give military aircraft, ships, ground vehicles, and weapon systems secure and reliable access to modernized GPS.

Raytheon's military code common GPS module was certified, along with its ground-based GPS receiver, or GB-GRAM, and the avionics GPS receiver, or GRAM- S/M . GB-GRAM and GRAM S/M are jointly developed with Trimble Inc., while General Dynamics provides cryptographic capabilities for the modules.
