US Army’s Sentinel A4 Radar Program Integrates Orolia M-Code Solution

On the battlefield, when each second counts, the ability to detect and identify missiles, rockets and enemy aircraft is critical to survival.  SecureSync with M-Code provides Sentinel A4 Radar with enhanced resilient positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) capabilities and improved resistance to existing and emerging GPS threats, such as jamming and spoofing to detect more types of threats sooner, for U.S. Army Soldiers.

Lockheed Martin was awarded a contract in September of 2019, to develop the U.S. Army’s Sentinel A4 system, an air and missile defense radar to provide improved capability against dynamic threats.

Within two months, Orolia Defense & Security launched M-Code Military GPS receivers in its flagship SecureSync, which is the first Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) approved time server.

In May 2021, Orolia delivered a shipment of M-Code enabled SecureSync mission timing and synchronization units to Lockheed Martin, marking another key milestone for the Army program.

Lockheed Martin chose Orolia’s SecureSync M-Code as the system’s resilient time and frequency reference solution in part due to its modular, open architecture, the same characteristics that are the cornerstone of the radar’s design, making integration a simple process and ensuring future upgrades.

“With our timing and PNT technology, we’ve built a system that allows for modularity at the PNT component level,” said Hironori Sasaki, President of Orolia Defense & Security.

“This enables integrators like Lockheed to leverage it and create different variants and incorporate new technology as it emerges into their systems.”

“We were able to quickly put together a solution for them that allowed them to migrate the technology to an M-code based PNT solution, to meet a lot of initiatives that the DoD and various army initiatives deem a critical capability for the future war fighter.”

“As a trusted Lockheed Martin partner, Orolia is proud to support the development of the Sentinel A4, which will be a key asset to our warfighters for decades to come.”

“Making M-Code available now in a readily configurable and scalable form factor is a critical step in advancing our forces out in the field, whether in the air or on the ground,” Sasaki added.

The next-generation of U.S. military systems are fortified with M-Code, and Orolia leads the industry in M-Code solutions for Navigation Warfare (NAVWAR) environments.

Orolia Defense & Security provides Resilient PNT solutions and custom engineering services to U.S. Government agencies, defense organizations, and government contractors.

The company is authorized to work on the full spectrum of U.S. Government classified and unclassified projects, in addition to supporting strategic partnerships for key defense PNT technologies.
