KVH Industries signs $5.2 million military deal

Publish date:

KVH Industries received a new order for its tactical navigation systems valued at $5.2 million from the military.

Shipments for the order are expected to begin in the next six weeks with all services being completed by the end of September. Program management, engineering services and installation support will be provided as part of the order.

Dan Conway, executive vice president of Rhode Island-based KVH’s guidance and stabilization group, said the systems are important tools for U.S. and allied war fighters.

“The system serves as a crucial resource for navigation and battle management, and even as a backup in GPS-denied environments, keeping soldiers safe and out of harm’s way wherever they travel,” Conway said in a statement. “This new order reaffirms the value of KVH’s TacNav products for international militaries and adds to our backlog for the year.”

The navigation systems are currently in use by the Army and Marine Corps.
