TACNAV 3D, a highly accurate inertial navigation system for military vehicles, now provides a visual map reference with touchscreen capability
MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Oct. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq:KVHI), announced today that its TACNAV® 3D inertial navigation system is now available with KVH’s exclusive TACNAV Moving Map Display (MMD). The MMD offers real-time moving map technology with an easy-to-read, easy-to-use graphical navigation capability.
Soldiers who once relied on grid reference alone now have the benefit of viewing a visual map on a 10-inch diagonal, high bright color display viewable in all lighting conditions. They can create, store, and activate waypoints and routes from the touchscreen, which helps increase situational awareness. The TACNAV MMD displays position, heading, speed, cross track error, distance, and bearing to waypoint, and is capable of presenting navigation information in multiple languages, enhancing joint multinational operations.
The TACNAV MMD adds even more capability to the TACNAV 3D, a high-performance fiber optic gyro-based inertial navigation system providing full three-dimensional navigation and an embedded GNSS. TACNAV 3D’s modular tactical design and flexible architecture allow it to function as either a standalone inertial navigation solution or as the core of an expandable, multi-functional battlefield management system. It is designed to provide navigation for light armored vehicles, both wheeled and tracked, medium and heavy combat vehicles, and main battle tanks.
“For military vehicles operating on the modern digital battlefield, TACNAV 3D is a vital component for effective battlefield management,” says Dan Conway, KVH executive vice president for the inertial navigation group. “The MMD enhances the capabilities of TACNAV 3D, providing touchscreen operation designed for intuitive use by today’s soldiers, and continuing our commitment to keeping soldiers out of harm’s way.”
The TACNAV 3D with MMD builds upon the success of KVH’s widely fielded TACNAV product line, which is currently in use by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, as well as many allied militaries, including Saudi Arabia, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Egypt, Botswana, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Romania, Poland, Turkey, Malaysia, Switzerland, South Korea, Singapore, Brazil, and Italy.
From October 9-11, KVH is displaying the TACNAV 3D with MMD at the AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition, Booth 7443, in Washington, DC.
