The navigation system is included into the tank control system and serves to automate the fulfilment of interaction between tanks within a tank unit in order to command its manoeuvres. Installation of the LIO-N system in the tank ensures the following:

  • determining the tank's own coordinates with the help of two satellite systems: GPS NAVSTAR (USA) and GLONASS (Russia);
  • collecting (with the help of the standard radio set) information about the location of the subordinate tanks and displaying this information on the screen;
  • generating, transmitting, receiving and displaying the text information (the information is input with the help of a keyboard and is transmitted through a digital radio channel by using the standard radio set);
  • storing and processing the pre-determined routes;
  • providing the driver with information about the movement direction required in order to reach the next route check-point.
