FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GPS Source, Inc. is pleased to announce the new GPS Smart Repeater, the GLI Echo II.
PUEBLO, Colorado (June 2010) – GPS Source announced today the coming addition to the GPS Source
product line, GLI Echo II. A primary LRU for GPS retransmission, it will provide a wireless or wired GPS
signal live inside any military vehicle or aircraft.
The GLI Echo-II is based on state of the art technology developed for permanent install GPS
retransmission in the Boeing C-17. Outperforming larger GPS retransmission systems costing several
thousand dollars more, it is compact and easy to operate. Featuring precisely controlled and user
adjustable output signal strength, it also has automatic oscillation detection, BIT and fault isolation, and
is NVG compatible.
Robert Horton, CEO of GPS Source, said “We are very excited about the new GLI Echo-II. It has been
designed to make life easier and safer for the Warfighter. It increases the Warfighter’s Situational
Awareness by allowing them to always have a GPS signal available inside their ground vehicle or aircraft.
The GLI Echo-II, with one input and four outputs, makes GPS available to many systems the Warfighter
uses inside a ground vehicle or aircraft. This includes, but is not limited to the following: Ground Soldier
System (GSS), DAGR, MRT/FBCB2, Tacticomp™, and Toughbook™. Having four outputs is important, as it
can significantly reduce the amount of wires and cables that are currently found inside a military vehicle
The GLI Echo-II is available as a roll on/roll off or permanent install system. It is designed to ensure
100% GPS L1/L2 signal coverage throughout a ground vehicle, plus the cargo compartment and flight
deck of any small to large military fixed wing or rotary wing transport aircraft. Examples of ground
vehicles would include: HMMWV, MRAP, Stryker, and similar infantry fighting vehicles. Examples of
aircraft would include: CH46/47, CH53, V-22, C-23, C-27J, C-130 (all variants), A400M, and the C-17.
GPS retransmission technology developed by GPS Source, Inc. is currently utilized by Land Warrior units
aboard the Stryker, RG-33, M1151, and has received air worthiness certification aboard the C-17. The
GLI Echo II will be available for delivery January 2011.
