Global Positioning System Receiver
Rockwell PLGR+96 Rockwell

(NSN 5825-01-395-3513)

General Description
The PLGR (Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver) computes accurate position co-ordinates, elevation, speed, and time information from signals transmitted by the Navstar Global 'Positioning System (GPS) satellites.  The PLGR can be operated as a stand-alone unit using an internal battery and integral antenna or can be installed in ground facilities, and air, sea, and land vehicles using an external power source and an external antenna.
