MIDDLETOWN, R.I., May 14, 2010 -- KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) announced today that it has received a $2 million order for its TACNAV(R) II tactical navigation system for use by an international customer. Shipment of this order is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2011 and conclude in early 2014.
"KVH's TACNAV II tactical navigation system is an important tool for navigation and coordination of vehicles operating in critical military situations," explains Dan Conway, KVH's vice president of business development. "The system is crucial to keeping soldiers safe and out of harm's way, serving as a resource for navigation, battle management, and even as a backup to GPS.
