As part of the Land 19 Phase 7B program of the Australian Ministry of Defence, Raytheon Australia selected Honeywell to provide it with the Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator (TALIN) to enhance the configuration of the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (eNASAMS).
TALIN technology will help improve the performance of eNASAMS by providing precise and accurate positioning, pointing and aiming, even when GPS satellite navigation is not available.
Honeywell TALIN navigation is suitable for environments where GPS cannot be used. It is a high-precision ring system based on ring laser gyro, which can enhance situational awareness and is suitable for military and commercial applications.
Raytheon Australia is working with Raytheon Technologies and KONGSBERG Defense & Aerospace to provide a new short-range land-based air defense capability that will enter service in the Australian Army in 2023. Missile barrel launcher, and provide high mobility launcher (HML) to improve performance and extend service life.
The enhanced configuration of eNASAMS will replace the existing capabilities used by the Australian Defense Force and will provide the Australian Army with an integrated ground-based air defense system. This capability will enable the Australian Army to use TALIN technology to respond to multiple threat types, thereby providing highly accurate and precise positioning capabilities in environments rejected by GPS.
“For thirty years, we have been at the forefront of inertial navigation system technology,” said Tim Van Luven, vice president of defense aftermarket sales for Honeywell Aerospace Asia Pacific. “Our advanced inertial navigation system for land applications will provide the Australian Army with a lightweight and highly accurate laser-guided navigation system that can achieve precise navigation to achieve mission success even in difficult terrain.”
