Micro Defence Advanced GPS Receiver (MicroDAGR), made by Rockwell Collins, 2012.

Since its first major use during the First Gulf War, 1990-91, GPS (Global Positioning System) technology has become vitally important tool for military forces. It is used in anything that requires accurate positioning, from weapons targeting to locating emergency bridges. The MicroDAGR is part of the next generation of GPS navigation equipment. It is handheld, with a colour touch screen, built in maps as well as anti-jamming technology. These receivers have been used by NATO forces since 2012. The GPS division of Rockwell Collins was acquired by BAE Systems in 2020.
