Lockheed Martin wins $25m contract for new F-35 anti-jamming GPS
30 Oct 2019 Garrett Reim

"Lockheed Martin won a $25 million contract to start engineering and manufacturing work on a new version of its GPS Spatial Temporal Anti-Jam Receiver (GSTAR) which will be installed in the F-35 Lightning II stealth fighter.

The installation of the new anti-jam GPS is part of the most recent F-35 modernisation phase, called Block 4, says Lockheed Martin in a media release on 29 October. Lockheed Martin plans to replace the F-35’s old GPS receiver, the Antenna Electronics Unit (AEU), with the GSTAR system. [explanation follows]…

...More than 2,500 GSTAR systems have already been installed on other aircraft, says the manufacturer. That includes a version installed in the USA’s leading stealth cruise missile, the Lockheed Martin-made Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM). JASSM is launched from an aircraft, such as the Rockwell B-1B or Boeing B-52, and must be able to resist electronic warfare interference as it flies and strikes deep into an adversary’s territory."

Look, look! This is evidence that the F-35 is a crap because it can be jammed with GPS jamming equipment!

A 4th/4.5th gen fighter aircraft stands about as much chance against a F-35 as a guns-only Sabre has against a Viper.
