Navigation systems are essential for military personnel, pilots, sailors, and vehicle operators. From portable devices to integrated displays and robust closed systems, there are a variety of navigation systems available for military trucks.
Global Positioning Satellite (GPS)systems have been around since the 1960s, but it wasn't until Ronald Reagan signed an executive order in the 1980s that they became available for public use. GPS systems are now used to track criminal and friendly activities, as well as provide personal protective devices for assets.
Removing the GPS unit may seem like a viable option for those looking to avoid detection; however, this will not eliminate navigation capability or deactivate the starter. Military navigation involves moving vehicles or personnel from one location to another by comparing the current position with known locations. New resilient navigation systems designed for commercial and military applications allow operations to continue even in environments challenged or denied by global navigation satellite systems.
GNSSsatellite navigation using systems such as GPS or Galileo is one of the main forms of navigation for military forces, but older methods such as radio or radar navigation are still being used.
Small GPS tracking tools can be used for frequently lost items, while vehicle and equipment tracking systems are available for larger assets. The TACNAV UMD is an ideal choice for any military vehicle that requires an easy-to-use interface for its tactical navigation system.
