Honeywell and Tectonica Build on Long-Term Relationship by Signing MOU

Honeywell Aerospace and Tectonica Australia are pleased to announce that a Memorandum of Understanding was signed at Land Forces in Adelaide, Australia to jointly promote and support the Tectonica and Honeywell military vehicle navigation solutions.

The MOU strengthens the relationship between Honeywell and Tectonica, providing an advanced Land Navigation Systems integrated and supported locally in Australia, with global export opportunities. Tectonica’s Protected Land Navigation System, LanNAV™ incorporates Honeywell’s Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator (TALIN™) and is the proven leader in protected and highly accurate land navigation. The LanNAV™ product family is a fully integrated military-off-the-shelf protected navigation system that provides an advanced navigation capability regardless of jamming attempts or terrain masking.  Tectonica’s range of highly advanced navigation systems deliver the standard of geo-location accuracy and protection demanded by the modern soldier.

Honeywell’s TALIN™ provides a high technology navigation solution for infantry fighting vehicles. Featuring full-inertial navigation, TALIN™ delivers advanced navigation performance that is more accurate than traditional magnetic systems, without any platform limitations. Utilising a high-accuracy ring laser-gyro and best in class accelerometers, the compact and simple to install unit enhances situational awareness by providing precise, multi-axis vehicle positioning, pointing and targeting without being GPS dependent.

Tectonica and Honeywell have successfully integrated Tectonica’s LanNAVTM system into the Australian Army M113 vehicle fleet under JP5408 and are discussing a collaboration that will provide the next generation navigation solution for vehicle platforms.

Tectonica’s Managing Director, David Levy said, “Our partnership with Honeywell continues to demonstrate its commitment to supporting Australian SMEs by providing export opportunities for our innovative navigation system”.
