KVH Industries released its TACNAV 3D inertial navigation system, which includes an embedded GNSS and optional chip-scale atomic clock.
According to the company, the TACNAV 3D’s modular tactical design and flexible architecture allow it to function as either a standalone navigation solution or as the core of a multi-functional Battlefield Management System.
TACNAV 3D can integrate with a number of military GNSS systems and features one pulse per second timing assurance during GNSS signal loss, the company added. It also includes an iridium transceiver option that transmits and receives vehicle position, waypoint, and target location to and from a command center or other vehicles. It can receive and transmit data over ethernet, CANbus or RS-422 serial data bus.
“It incorporates a chip-scale atomic clock,” said Bill Houtz, business development — military and government for KVH Industries’ Inertial Navigation Group. “It has an embedded GPS, or we can work with other GPS external systems. It’s extremely flexible. It is an excellent SWAP-C alternative to the ring-laser gyros or other solutions on the market right now.”
