INNOVATIVE CONCEPTS ENHANCES IDM OPERATIONAL FLIGHT SOFTWARE.
In addition, with its FBCB2-Air technology, the IDM delivers Tactical Internet capabilities directly to the cockpit. The Tactical Internet, implemented via IDM Technology, permits rapid, accurate target engagement, efficient fire support synchronization, and a significant reduction in the potential for friendly fire incidents. By adopting digital data transfer, situational awareness is enhanced because friendly and enemy unit location information can be automatically updated and displayed to all units.
The IDM is not only fully compatible with the Tactical Internet; it can also transmit and receive the full spectrum of Variable Message Format (VMF) messages and interconnects the military's major networks in both maneuver and fire support. The IDM also provides critical linkage to the military's legacy data communications systems of AFAPD, TACFIRE, MTS and IDL.
The scheduled enhancements for IDM V7.0 include: more fully integrating Army Aviation into the Tactical Internet by adding support for EPLRS radios, improved Situational Awareness processing and Blue Force Awareness, improved non-line-of-sight reach by adding support for HF and SATCOM radios, and adding additional support for VMF messages for use by FBCB2-Air.
The U.S. Army has designated IDM Technology for installation on every helicopter in the Army inventory, including the Apache Longbow, Kiowa Warrior, Chinook, and Blackhawk. The new RAH-66 Comanche will receive a software-only version of IDM Technology for use in its Integrated Communications, Navigation, and Identification Avionics (ICNIA) system. IDM Technology has been successfully employed in Operation Enduring Freedom and in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
In addition to use by U.S. Army Aviation, IDM Technology is deployed on several foreign platforms worldwide.
