The integrated navigation and pointing solution for the digital military

The TACNAV II Fiber Gyro Navigation Engine is the easy-to-integrate, affordable solution for battle management and weapon systems. Ideal for virtually any platform, the system offers a compact design, continuous heading and pointing data output, and a flexible architecture that allows it to function as either a stand alone navigation module or as the heart of an expanded, multifunctional TACNAV system. And with its precision fiber optic gyro (FOG) base and an optional compass sensor providing a complete backup to GPS, TACNAV II can integrate with a host of applications, including navigation and data consolidation for Battle Management Systems (BMS). It’s the perfect navigation and pointing solution for vehicle systems integrators and today’s digital military.
