Honeywell to supply ADF with TALIN technology

As part of the Australian Department of Defence’s LAND 19 Phase 7B program, Honeywell has been selected by Raytheon Australia to provide its Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator (TALIN) for the enhanced configuration of the National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (eNASAMS).

As part of the Australian Department of Defence’s LAND 19 Phase 7B program, Honeywell has been selected by Raytheon Australia to provide its Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator (TALIN) for the enhanced configuration of the National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (eNASAMS).

Honeywell's TALIN technology is designed to enhance the eNASAMS performance by providing precise and accurate positioning, pointing and targeting, even where GPS satellite guidance is not available.

Suitable for GPS-denied environments, Honeywell's TALIN system is designed to deliver a high-accuracy, ring laser-gyro-based system that enhances situational awareness in both military and commercial applications.

Raytheon Australia is working with parent company Raytheon Technologies and KONGSBERG Defence & Aerospace to deliver a new Short-Range Ground-Based Air Defence capability that will enter service with the Australian Army in 2023.

According to Tim Van Luven, vice president, defence aftermarket sales at Honeywell Aerospace Asia Pacific, Honeywell's experience with inertial navigation system technologies for over three decades has been a critical part of TALIN technology development.

“Our advanced inertial navigation system for land applications will provide the Australian Army with a lightweight and highly accurate laser guidance navigation system that enables precision navigation for mission success even in difficult terrains,” Van Luven said.

The eNASAMS system includes a passive electro-optical and infrared sensor and upgraded missile canister launchers and provides high-mobility launchers (HMLs) for increased performance and lifetime extension.

The enhanced configuration of eNASAMS will replace the existing capability used by the Australian Defence Force and will provide the Australian Army with an integrated ground-based surface-to-air defence system.

This capability is expected to enable the Australian Army to engage multiple threat types with the TALIN technology providing highly accurate precision-pointing capabilities in GPS-denied environments.

The TALIN features three-axis inertial sensors and weighs less than six kilograms. It is easily installed and can be mounted in several ways, and its smaller and lighter design aims to help offer a more reliable performance.

Approximately 18,000 Honeywell TALIN land navigation and pointing systems are deployed in more than 20 countries for use on over 60 land-based platforms, including M1A1 Abrams tanks, Polish Fighting Vehicles and Akash Army Launchers.
