10th March 2021 - 14:52 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

New centre in Israel will focus on developing and producing navigation systems for use in GPS-denied environments.

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), working with the Directorate of Defense Research & Development in the Israeli MoD, has established a new centre to focus on navigation technologies that can function in GPS-denied environments.

Tamam (the EO and inertial navigation division of IAI) will develop and produce ‘highly-accurate inertial sensors’ in the new facility, the company announced on 10 March. ‘These sensors will enable the production of next-generation navigation systems, and will significantly increase their performance and capabilities.’

EW-resistant inertial navigation units will be implemented in various unnamed Israeli defence systems ‘to address the challenges of the modern battlefield’, the company added.
