KVH Introduces Affordable and Highly Reliable Navigation Solution for Light Military Vehicles



TACNAV® Light/GPS, a compass-based system with embedded GPS and multiple display options, brings an added level of flexibility and performance to light vehicle navigation

Middletown, RI – February 19, 2017 – KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI), is introducing the TACNAV Light/GPS navigation solution today, at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX), in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Based on KVH’s successful line of tactical navigation systems, TACNAV Light/GPS features a newly designed sensor mast with embedded GPS, and utilizes KVH’s new TACNAV Moving Map Display (MMD) and its proven Universal Multilingual Display (UMD).

TACNAV Light/GPS is designed specifically to meet the requirements of light military vehicles used for such functions as troop transport and reconnaissance, where 100% situational awareness is vital. The system provides positioning accuracy within 5 meters CEP with valid GPS, and a dead reckon accuracy of 2-3% distance travelled without GPS.

“The TACNAV Light/GPS is an affordable and reliable navigation solution for a wide range of military vehicles today,” says Dan Conway, executive vice president of KVH’s guidance and stabilization group. “It’s particularly useful to have two displays – the MMD with the user-friendly touchscreen for the commander, and the UMD for the driver – providing essential information to keep vehicles on track and soldiers safe.”

The new MMD delivers real-time tactical moving map technology that enables the vehicle’s commander to view vehicle travel; the commander can also create, store, and activate waypoints by utilizing the touchscreen. The vehicle driver relies on KVH’s proven multilingual display, the UMD, for steer-to functionality.

KVH’s TACNAV product line is currently in use by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, as well as many allied militaries, including Saudi Arabia, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Egypt, Botswana, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Romania, Poland, Turkey, Malaysia, Switzerland, South Korea, Singapore, Brazil, and Italy.
