KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) has received a new order with a net value of more than $10 million for the company’s TACNAV® tactical navigation systems for use by an international military customer — all hardware deliveries for this order are scheduled to take place in 2020.
KVH’s fiber optic gyro (FOG)-based TACNAV systems are designed to provide unjammable inertial navigation data that fills in the gaps when GNSS is lost or unavailable, helping to keep soldiers and missions on track. The TACNAV solutions deliver critical, reliable performance in demanding environments for vehicles ranging from battle tanks and M-ATVs, to armored vehicles, reconnaissance, and combat support vehicles.
TACNAV systems are currently in use by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, as well as many allied customers including Australia, Botswana, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Malaysia, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, and Turkey.
“KVH’s battle-proven TACNAV systems provide the precise navigation that is vital to mission success,” said Dan Conway, EVP of KVH’s inertial navigation group. “With militaries demanding assured positioning, navigation, and timing (A-PNT) solutions, this new order reaffirms the value of KVH’s unjammable TACNAV products and adds to our backlog.”
