The Soldier IDM is a ruggedized, small, lightweight, and modular Improved Data Modem. Dismounted forces can use the Soldier IDM with a tactical computer/device, such as a Laptop, Tablet, or Smart Phone, and a Combat Net Radio (UHF/VHF/SINCGARS) to perform their DACAS/Fires missions.
Its modular design supports interface flexibility on both the host-side (USB) and the radio-side (synchronous data) through adapter cables. The Soldier IDM supports two fully-independent radio channels, so only one modem is required to provide multiple data link solutions.
The Soldier IDM core executes Aeronix’ WinIDM dual-channel software modem for its VMF/AFAPD/TACFIRE/MTS waveform solutions. For VMF networks, WinIDM also implements XNPv2 and MIL-STD-2045-47001 Segmentation/Reassembly. Alternatively, Soldier IDM can serve as a Sync-Serial interface to a CNR allowing other waveforms to be utilized.
As a full-service, small business engineering firm, Aeronix can nimbly adapt to meet your specific form factor requirements.
