Honeywell Specialty Materials : 14 June, 2006  (New Product)
Honeywell announced today that its Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator 500 has been selected by BAE Systems for the Dutch CV9035 infantry fighting vehicle, manufactured by BAE System
First deliveries of the TALIN system are expected by the end of this year.

The TALIN 500 navigation system, which provides precise continuous position and velocity information to the vehicle crew, is used in tactical military vehicles like main battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and armored troop carriers.

“Situational awareness and force tracking are crucial for mission success on today’s dynamic battlefields,” said Wilfried Bergmann, Managing Director, Honeywell Regelsysteme GmbH, Germany. “The TALIN 500 makes situational awareness and force tracking affordable for a large class of medium- to heavy-tactical vehicles. Force tracking has proven to be crucial for the success of recent military campaigns. The TALIN 500 makes this possible, even when GPS countermeasures are employed by the opposing force.”

With its integrated digital communication and force tracking system, the TALIN 500 significantly increases situational awareness for troops on the battlefield by providing continuous, self-contained, accurate location and pointing information for enhanced situational awareness far target location, target acquisition, weapons and sensor pointing. Delivering automated positioning, pointing, and navigation, this is the first TALIN to be developed specifically for tactical vehicles which have stringent requirements for space, weight and cost.

Through a unique inertial sensor package that provides improved situational awareness on the field of battle by displaying information in three dimensions; forward/backward, up/down, left/right combined with rotation about three perpendicular axes (yaw, pitch, roll) and a global positioning system receiver, TALIN offers unprecedented robustness, even in challenging GPS environments, in one compact unit. The six-degrees of freedom sensor package compensates for sideslip and highly dynamic vehicle maneuvers and delivers reliable positioning and pointing information.

The Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator or TALIN family of products is adapted from high-volume airborne inertial system components and is used for combat vehicle applications. TALIN provides continuous, self-contained, accurate location and pointing information for enhanced situational awareness, far target location, target acquisition, weapons pointing and sensor pointing.

The CV9035 is a new-generation CV90, with improved fire power, protection, mobility and ergonomics and an advanced electronics architecture.

Honeywell to develop class I unmanned aerial vehicles for U.S. Army’s future combat system

Honeywell announced today that it has been selected to develop and build the Class I Unmanned Aerial Vehicle System for the U.S. Army’s Future Combat System program.

The contract is valued at approximately $61 million. Honeywell was selected by Boeing and Science Applications International Corporation, the Lead Systems Integrator for the FCS program.

The Class I UAVS is designed to be used as a platoon-level asset and is the smallest UAVS in a system of four FCS unmanned aerial vehicle classes.

“Honeywell’s UAVS will provide soldiers new tactical battle information, enhanced situational awareness and survivability on the battlefield,” said Mike Cuff, Honeywell Defense & Space Vice President for Surface Systems. “The back-packable units will be used for reconnaissance, security and target acquisition. Employing vertical takeoff and landing, the FCS Class I UAVS can navigate through rolling, complex and urban terrain using its hover-and-stare capability to increase the operational effectiveness and situational awareness of the unit employing the vehicle,” Cuff said.

The Honeywell UAVS will be equipped with a Deeply Integrated Guidance and Navigation Unit, a technological advancement of the Inertial Measurement Unit and Flight Management Unit. The DIGNU technology is key to the autonomous navigation and flight control attributes of the system. The DIGNU is designed, developed and manufactured at Honeywell’s Ridgeway, Minnesota facility.
