    Special LOA Terms and Conditions for GPS PPS Host Application Equipment (HAE)
    1. Definition: GPS PPS HAE are all applications of electronic products that implement or contain any of the GPS PPS security functions, i.e., selective availability (SA), anti-spoofing (A-S), and associated cryptography. GPS PPS HAE receives and processes the PPS signals transmitted from the GPS satellites. GPS PPS HAE are categorized as standalone, embedded, and integrated. Standalone HAE are self-contained GPS receivers that are capable of being operated independently of other systems. Embedded HAE are GPS receiver modules or circuit card assemblies intended to be integrated into other systems. Integrated HAE are enclosed multifunctional or multi-sensor systems that contain embedded GPS receivers.

    2. Purchaser is authorized to purchase GPS HAE that have a security design approved by the GPS Joint Program Office as "Unclassified/Controlled" when keyed.

    3. Purchaser shall not use or permit the use of any GPS PPS HAE or related technical data, computer software, or components thereof, in any complete rocket system (including ballistic missiles, space launch vehicles, and sounding rockets) and unmanned air vehicle system (including cruise missile systems, target drones and reconnaissance drones) capable of delivering a payload larger than 500kg beyond a range of 300 km without the prior written consent of the United States Government.

    4. The purchaser is not authorized to perform maintenance on GPS PPS security devices (the PPS Security Module (PPS-SM), Auxiliary Output Chip (AOC), combined PPS-SA/AOC device, Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM), or SAASM Code Block (SCB)), equipment subassemblies containing GPS PPS security devices, or related GPS PPS software. If a malfunction of a GPS PPS HAE is isolated to a subassembly containing a GPS PPS security device, the faulty subassembly shall be removed, replaced, and returned to the U.S. Government for repair. If any GPS PPS security device or any subassembly containing a GPS PPS security device is no longer needed or wanted, it shall be returned to the U.S. Government for destruction. For disposition instructions contact the Global Positioning Systems Wing, Los Angeles Air Force Base; 483 North Aviation Blvd; El Segundo. CA 90245-2808; Admin phone number (310) 653-3001.

    5. The purchaser shall provide for the protection of GPS PPS security devices from unauthorized access, theft, tampering, or loss.

    6. The purchaser is responsible for accountability by quantity for GPS PPS HAE purchased pursuant to this LOA. The purchaser shall account for the GPS PPS HAE by performing equipment inventories at least annually and whenever there is a change in personnel responsible for GPS PPS HAE. Any incident involving unauthorized access to, or tampering with, theft, or loss of, GPS PPS HAE shall be reported to the U.S. GPS Joint Program Office.

    7. If the purchaser decides to discontinue use of GPS PPS equipment, this LOA shall terminate with respect to GPS PPS equipment and all GPS PPS security devices shall be returned to the U.S. Government.

    8. This LOA does not include provision for the transfer of GPS/PPS cryptographic hardware and software technology, design, or manufacturing information."
