MIDDLETOWN, R.I., 24 June 2005. KVH Industries Inc. in Middletown, R.I., received a $1.5 million order from an existing U.S. military customer for the company's TACNAV military vehicle navigation system.

KVH's TACNAV use the company's digital compass and fiber optic gyro (FOG) technology as well as proprietary software algorithms to provide uninterrupted navigation, heading, and pointing data for vehicle drivers, commanders, and crews.

While TACNAV complements the global positioning system, its self-contained sensors operate independently of GPS, to provide mission-critical data for troops in the vehicle and to the digital battlefield even if GPS is blocked, jammed, or is otherwise unavailable.

TACNAV can also link each vehicle and the overall digital battlefield, making each unit a node in a secure military network. TACNAV is in use on U.S. and allied vehicles deployed in Iraq. For more information contact KVH online at www.tacnav.com.
