KVH Receives $3.5 Million Order for TACNAV Tactical Navigation Systems
MIDDLETOWN, R.I. — KVH Industries Inc. has received a $3.5 million order for its TACNAV tactical navigation systems for use by an international military customer, the company announced in an April 5 release. Revenue from this order is expected to begin in the third quarter of this year and conclude in 2018.
“KVH’s TACNAV tactical navigation solution provides precision navigation as well as coordination of military vehicles in critical situations,” said Dan Conway, executive vice president of KVH’s inertial navigation group. “The system serves as a crucial resource for navigation and battle management, and as a backup in GPS [Global Positioning System]-denied environments, keeping Soldiers safe and out of harm’s way wherever they travel. This new order reaffirms the value of KVH’s TACNAV products for international militaries, and adds to our backlog.”
KVH’s TACNAV military vehicle navigation systems provide unjammable precision navigation, heading, and pointing data for vehicle drivers, crews, and commanders. TACNAV also serves as a heading and position source for situational awareness. The fiber optic gyro-based TACNAV system ordered today is designed to improve dead-reckoning and target-location accuracy.
TACNAV systems are currently in use by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, as well as many allied customers including Canada, Sweden, Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Egypt, Botswana, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Romania, Poland, Turkey, Malaysia, Switzerland, South Korea, Singapore, Brazil and Italy.
