Honeywell Aerospace signed a licensing agreement with Tata Power’s Strategic Engineering Division (SED), enabling it to produce Honeywell’s Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator, or “TALIN” in India. This Honeywell-patented technology enables vehicles and artillery to navigate very precisely, even where GPS satellite guidance is not available, to increase troop safety and maximize mission success.
Aligning with the Indian Government’s objective of organically growing its defense industry and the call for “Make in India”, Honeywell will license the design, hardware and expertise to assemble, test and, in the future, build the production kits for TALIN to Tata Power SED. It will mark the first time India has produced inertial land navigation technology, providing the Indian Armed Forces with a locally constructed advanced land navigation technology that is not limited by a reliance upon GPS — an important benefit for vehicles and artillery operating across the country’s mountain, desert and forest terrain where satellite signals can be limited.
“TALIN represents the latest in GPS-free navigation and positioning technology, designed to improve asset safety and ultimately mission success,” said Arijit Ghosh, president India,Honeywell Aerospace. “By partnering with Tata Power SED on the production of TALIN we are aligning with the Government’s aim of increasing locally manufactured technologies for India’s defense industry and giving the Indian Armed Forces an easy-to-justify option for navigation on the 21st Century battlefield.”
