TALIN System Adds New Platform to Customer Base
The British Army’s AJAX armoured fighting vehicles are to be equipped with Honeywell’s TALIN inertial land navigation technology. TALIN is a battle-tested navigation solution that can improve mission success in difficult terrain by providing operators with a lightweight, highly accurate laser guidance system.
Featuring three-axis inertial sensors and weighing less than 6kg, TALIN is in operational use on military and commercial platforms worldwide. It is easily installed and can be mounted in a number of ways. It is smaller and lighter than other available navigation solutions and offers more reliable performance.
“Soldiers depend on technologies to provide unparalleled precision aboard their combat vehicles, as do workers using sensor platforms or mining equipment,” said Milind Ghanekar, senior director OEMs, Defense and Space, Honeywell Aerospace. “Over 15,000 Honeywell TALIN systems are deployed by land, air and sea on more than 60 military and commercial platforms worldwide. The British Army’s AJAX program builds on our extensive experience with this highly precise navigation technology.”
