PreTalen wins $15M SBIR contract to support global navigation satellite system

PreTalen has won a $15 million contract to support the Air Force’s Global Navigation Satellite System receivers.

The GNSS is a system that is used to locate the location of a user’s receiver at any point around the globe.

The contract is part of the Small Business Innovation Research Program, phase three.

Under the contract, PreTalen will provide the extension of the suite of custom software and hardware designed to simultaneously and autonomously test currently available Global Navigation Satellite System receivers across the threat spectrum, the Defense Department said in a release.

Work will be performed in Columbius Grove, Ohio, and at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and is expected to wrap up in August 2020.
