Abstract:

KVH Industries proposes to prototype and deliver a unique space-based asset tracking and inventory system. The proposed system will integrate off-the-shelf communications GPS and a KVH designed digital compass navigation system, TACNAV. The KVH design will be capable of providing instantaneous position updates using the now fully operational Generation III Inmarst D/D+ technology. The integrated TACNAV compass/odometer based system will ensure 100% position availability, not susceptible to the effects of terrain masking, jamming or GPS outage. The KVH design will have an open architecture enabling easy adaptability for use with Orbcomm, Starsys and be integrated with the U.S. Army's SINGARS radio communications system. The proposed KVH design will be inherently low cost, based on commercial ruggedized hardware, capable of being fully integrated with emerging vehicle and vessel tracking systems for the U.S. Military. The KVH prototype system will take advantage of existing technologies but will also address the benefit of being able to integrate with the Applique technology of the U.S. Army's Force XXI. Additionally, the proposed KVH design will have multi-use applications in both tethered and untethered over the road vehicle, commercial marine shipping and rail car tracking
