MIDDLETOWN, R.I. – KVH Industries Inc. in Middletown, R.I., is introducing the TACNAV Moving Map Display (MMD) that offers real-time moving map technology for military vehicles.

The TACNAV MMD provides an easy-to-read, easy-to-use graphical navigation capability by combining available internal or external Global Positioning System (GPS) and global navigation satellite system (GNSS) with TACNAV's inertial or compass-guided navigation.

Warfighters who once relied on grid reference alone now can view a visual map on a bright, 10-inch diagonal, color display that they can read in all lighting conditions. They can create, store, and activate waypoints and routes from the touchscreen, which helps increase situational awareness.

The TACNAV MMD shows position, heading, speed, cross track error, distance, and bearing to waypoint. Vehicle location and other pertinent navigation information shows on either a satellite or topographic map stored locally on the TACNAV MMD.

The information can display to the vehicle commander, driver, and other occupants as required. The TACNAV MMD can present navigation information in several languages. The TACNAV MMD is compatible with existing TACNAV systems.
