US Navy selects Harris Corp to upgrade TAMMAC map systems


The TAMMAC Digital Map Computer provides military aircrews with sophisticated moving maps and other critical mission information via cockpit displays.

MELBOURNE (BNS): US Navy has awarded a $30 million to Harris Corporation for upgrading the Tactical Airborne Moving Map Capability (TAMMAC) Digital Map System.

Under the contract, the aerospace company will deliver 14 pre-production digital map systems containing new Embedded Graphics Cards (EGC) that generate two independent, high-resolution digital map channels to enhance aircrews' situational awareness.

The company will also supply 158 TAMMAC Digital Map Computers (DMCs) and 132 TAMMAC Digital Video Map Computers (DVMCs). Seventeen of the DVMCs will be provided to the Royal Australian Air Force.

Harris will also demonstrate a Future Airborne Capabilities Environment (FACE) for a wide range of tactical aircraft.

The TAMMAC Digital Map Computer provides military aircrews with sophisticated moving maps and other critical mission information via cockpit displays.

It provides aircrews with a graphical presentation of the aircraft's current position, as well as the relative positions of targets, threats, terrain features, planned mission flight effectiveness and other critical information.

"These follow-on contracts represent key milestones in this very successful, long-term programme with the US Navy and its international TAMMAC partners," Pat Seamon, vice president, Avionics and Electronics Programs, Harris Government Communications Systems, was quoted saying in a company news release.

TAMMAC maps are used on many US and allied military aircraft and helicopters, including the US Navy's F/A-18C/D, F/A-18E/F and EA-18G; the US Marine Corps' F/A-18A/C/D, AV-8B, AH-1Z, and UH-1Y; the AW101 for Denmark and Italy; the CF-18 A/B for Canada and the F/A-18A/B for Australia.

TAMMAC maps are also in use by the military forces of Switzerland, Finland, and Spain.
