MIDDLETOWN, R.I. - KVH Industries Inc. has received a sole-source contract from the U.S. Army Tank and Automotive Command (TACOM) for the purchase of KVH’s TACNAV vehicle navigation systems for use on U.S. Army combat vehicles. The contract is potentially worth $11.5 million over five years.
TACNAV supports U.S. and allied warfighters in a wide range of demanding military environments, offering vehicle navigation, integration with digital battlefield management systems, and precision stabilization and pointing.
KVH’s TACNAV military vehicle navigation systems provide unjammable, precision navigation, heading, and pointing data for vehicle drivers, crews, and commanders.
TACNAV can also serve as a link between each vehicle and the overall digital battlefield, making each unit a node in a secure military network that consolidates a range of tactical data to provide detailed information to individual units and military commanders.
TACNAV systems are currently in use on U.S. and allied vehicles participating in ongoing operations in Iraq and elsewhere. Military forces fielding TACNAV include the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, and Navy as well as allied customers, such as Canada, Sweden, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Switzerland, and Italy.
