5th December 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics Land Systems UK has selected Honeywell's TALIN inertial land navigation technology for installation on the British Army's new Ajax armoured fighting vehicles, Honeywell announced on 30 November.

TALIN is a lightweight and highly accurate laser guidance system that features three-axis inertial sensors weighing less than 6kg. The INS/GPS navigation solution provides pointing accuracy and precision navigation in GPS denied conditions.

General Dynamics Land Systems UK is delivering the Ajax vehicles under a $5.9 billion contract awarded by the UK Ministry of Defence in September 2014.

Milind Ghanekar, senior director OEMs, Defense and Space at Honeywell Aerospace, said: 'Over 15,000 Honeywell TALIN systems are deployed by land, air and sea on more than 60 military and commercial platforms worldwide. The British Army's Ajax programme builds on our extensive experience with this highly precise navigation technology.'
