Cedar Rapids Gazette: The U.S. Defense Logistics Agency awarded BAE Systems a $325.5 million contract for work to be done in Cedar Rapids and Coralville, BAE Systems said today. The United Kingdom-based company will produce M-Code Global Positioning System units “that will provide reliable and secure positioning, navigation and timing data with anti-jamming and anti-spoofing capabilities,” according to a news release. The company temporarily is using space from Collins Aerospace until its new classified aerospace defense facility in Cedar Rapids is complete in 2022. The contract is in addition to a $247 million contract BAE Systems received from the U.S. Space Force in February for work on military GPS technology.
