Honeywell Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator Selected By Army For Bradley Vehicle And Abrams Tank
Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that its Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator (TALINTM) navigation and pointing system has been selected by the U.S. Army for the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle and M1A1 Abrams Tank
Under the terms of the four-year, $40.7 million contract, Honeywell will provide 973 TALINTM systems to enhance battlefield navigation capabilities on the vehicles. The inertial systems will provide navigation position, velocity, heading, altitude, target location determination, communications reporting and time data for map displays.
“Our TALINs will help keep America’s warfighters safer by increasing navigation and coordination between vehicles, commanders and other units on the battlefield,” said Mike Cuff, Vice President, Surface Systems, Honeywell Defense and Space. “Honeywell’s system will also give vehicle commanders vital backup navigation capacity should existing global positioning systems fail during combat.”
Honeywell’s TALINTM can be integrated with command and control systems, providing data updates every five seconds, as well as fire control platforms to allow target transfer from one weapons system to another. The self-sustaining navigation technology can also host existing and future GPS capabilities.
TALINTM systems are currently in use on the following U.S. military platforms: Bradley Fighting Vehicle, M1A1 Abrams Tank, Bradley Fire Support Vehicle (FIST), Stryker Force FIST vehicle, Stryker Force Mortar Vehicle, Mortar Fire Control System, Complementary Low-Altitude Weapons System (CLAWS), Canadian Forward Observer Vehicle and 155mm Howitzer Towed Artillery Digitization. Honeywell has delivered more than 4,000 TALINTM Systems.
