KVH announces TACNAV order

8th June 2012 - 12:40 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


KVH has announced that it has received an order from the Office of the Program Manager-Saudi Arabian National Guard to modernise its military vehicles. The $35.6 million contract includes approximately $22 million in equipment and $13 million in services for the Foreign Military Sale (FMS) order.

Under the contract, KVH will supply TACNAV TLS and TACNAV Light navigation systems, and manage the installation, integration, and training services as well as the construction of a retrofit facility.

KVH’s TACNAV military vehicle navigation systems provide unjammable, precision navigation, heading, and pointing data for vehicle drivers, crews, and commanders. Whenever reliable GPS signals are unavailable, TACNAV navigates using dead-reckoning based on its own heading and distance travelled measurements, providing all onboard systems with continuous position calculations to enable them to function correctly while GPS is blocked, jammed, or otherwise degraded.

Deliveries of the TACNAV systems are expected to begin as soon as the third quarter of 2012 and continue into 2013. Installation, integration, and training services will be provided over the period from early 2013 to the second half of 2014.
