SENTRySCOUT Developers Kit
General Dynamic’s SENTRySCOUT Assured Positioning, Navigation & Timing System, is based on the US Army’s Mounted APNT System MAPS GEN-1, and provides trusted and reliable Positioning, Navigation and Timing data, independent of the availability or integrity of GPS signals.
Bringing assured PNT to the forefront by validating GPS signals, SENTRySCOUT creates and disseminates IS-GPS-153 messages when GPS is denied or unreliable, conveying data via Ethernet and serial clients. SENTRySCOUT continuously distributes valid PNT data to all vehicle clients using Ethernet (VICTORY) and serial protocols.
All items can be sold separately. Contact us for more information.
ED3 or E-FLO-G are COTS products providing SAASM or M-Code protected GPS data that is depot level upgradeable from SAASM to M-Code. ED3 or E-FLO-G with VCAM installed retains 100% compatibility with all standard DAGR mount accessories and occupies the same space claim as the DAGR.
(J1) Key fill/COM3 port (replicates DAGR J1)
(J2) Configuration Utility/Diagnostics Port
(J2 – X) Each of the 4 ports independently replicate DAGR J2 (supports up to 8 individual clients). Each port distributes independent IS-GPS-153 and MSID messages via COM1 (RS232) and COM2 (configurable RS232 or RS422); PPS
(1PPS UTC, 10PPS UTC & T-Mark); HAVEQUICK. Supports clients such as Tactical radios, FBCB2/BFT, Laptop/ Falconview, MRT’s, etc.
(J3) AJ or FRPA Antenna – Enhanced compatibility with AJ antennas operating in any mode;
(J4) 28VDC Switched Vehicle Power (Required); 28VDC Auxiliary Backup Power (Optional)
VICTORY CSAC Accessory Module
VICTORY CSAC Accessory Module (VCAM) is an optional module from GPS Source’s existing family of solutions that fall under the Enhanced D3 product line. The VCAM integrates various non-GPS sensors to support a complete positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) assurance capability. Designed as an open system, it allows integration of other products that support non-GPS solutions for PNT including an Inertial Navigation System (INS), Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) and software designed for electronic surveillance / electronic protection (ES/EP). Cutting edge VCAM technology integrates all timing and positioning solutions into one entity, allowing for seamless change from one source of timing data to another.
FRPA Active Antenna
The FRPA-3EW is a military grade, high performance, wider band GNSS active antenna designed for the demanding high signal levels of the electronic warfare environment. It is small and lightweight, with exceptional protection against the elements.
AJAIM (Anti-Jam Antenna Integration Module)
The AJAIM is a military qualified, two input four output Anti-Jam Antenna System (AJAS) and Fixed Radiation Pattern Antenna (FRPA) integration module. This module enables the RF input to an Assured Position, Navigation & Timing (ANPT) to be switched between an AJ and RFPA. The AJAIM also switches the vehicle batery power to the AJAS depending on the needs of the connected APNT system, thereby creating a low power mode based on using only the FRPA input.
