A-PNT-capable, Highly Accurate Full 3D Navigation in All Terrains – Now Available with PIC Technology
The FOG-based TACNAV® 3D tactical inertial navigation system provides an assured position, navigation, and timing system with an embedded GNSS and optional Chip-scale Atomic Clock (CSAC). TACNAV 3D also has EMCORE’s new exclusive photonic integrated chip technology, which delivers even more reliability while maintaining or improving accuracy and performance. TACNAV 3D’s modular tactical design means it functions as a standalone inertial navigation solution, and as the core of an A-PNT-capable multi-functional battlefield management system.
Features of the field-tested TACNAV 3D include:
Precision Inertial Sensors
TACNAV systems feature EMCORE’s high-performance Fiber Optic Gyro (FOG)-based inertial sensors providing mission-critical performance:
Integrated Chip-scale Atomic Clock
The optional Chip-scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) timing option maintains PPS signal integrity during GPS/GNSS loss, a critical feature in preventing timing delays of PPS output to military radios, etc.
Iridium Two-way Messaging
An Iridium transceiver option is available to transmit and receive vehicle position, waypoint, and target location to or from a command center or other vehicles.
TACNAV Moving Map Display
The rugged TACNAV Moving Map Display (MMD) provides an easy-to-use graphical navigation capability for military vehicles by combining available internal or external GPS/GNSS with TACNAV’s inertial or compass-guided navigation solution.
TACNAV Universal Multilingual Display
EMCORE’s TACNAV Universal Multilingual Display (UMD) offers robust tactical display technology, capable of presenting navigation and other critical information in multiple languages.
