British company Satmap Systems has launched its most advanced military global positioning system (GPS), Satmap10MX at this year’s Defence Systems & Equipment International event in London.

The GPS is compatable with army night-vision goggle systems and will be used to overcome the inherent difficulties of night-time navigation during operations.

The GPS device incorporates major new technologies and functionality including, operational mapping display, military grade map security and position management.

Satmap Systems managing director Richard Calthrop-Owen said the Satmap10MX is easy to use and operates effectively in all weather, day or night even with NVGs.

The Satmap10MX weighs 175g and also includes extened battery life, a 3.5in screen and has an optional armoured rubber case that provides an IP67 waterproof rating and a drop test rating of 3m.
