The two orders, which have a total value of approximately $1.7 million, are both scheduled to ship during the second and third quarters of 2007.

"The upgrades and enhancements addressed by these TACNAV components will permit TACNAV systems in the field to support applications in a wide range of demanding military environments, including vehicle navigation and integration with digital battlefield management systems," explains Dan Conway, vice president of business development for KVH Industries.

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 wide range of tactical data to provide detailed information to individual units and military commanders.

TACNAV systems are 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 many allied customers, among them Canada, Sweden, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Switzerland, and Italy.

Due to contractual restrictions, additional details regarding the customers and vehicle platforms cannot be disclosed at this time.
