The US Navy has awarded a contract to Harris Corporation to upgrade the tactical airborne moving map capability (TAMMAC) digital map system.
Under a $30m contract, the company will deliver 14 digital map systems integrated with new embedded graphics cards (EGCs) to generate two independent, high-resolution digital map channels to enhance aircrews’ situational awareness.
Harris will also supply 158 TAMMAC digital map computers (DMCs) and 132 TAMMAC digital video map computers (DVMCs).
The DMCs provide aircrews with critical information including graphical presentation of the current aircraft position, relative positions of targets, threats, terrain features as well as planned mission flight effectiveness.
