The target location system for turreted armored vehicles

TACNAV TLS is a tactical navigation and targeting system designed for turreted vehicles, including cavalry, reconnaissance, armored personnel carriers, and light armored vehicles. The system offers a range of capabilities, including GPS backup and enhancement, vehicle position, hull and turret azimuth, steer-to/cross-track error displays, and far target location. And when linked to a digital Battle Management System (BMS), TACNAV TLS can provide the force commander with continuous, jam-proof position data, improving operational effectiveness. With its versatile displays, BMS interface, and T•FOG upgrade capability (when greater precision is required), TACNAV TLS brings a new level of flexibility and performance to armored vehicle navigation.
