IDM Tactical Communications
TACFIRE, AFAPD, MIL-STD-188/220/VMF
Aeronix partnered with Symetrics Industries to develop the Improved Data Modem (IDM) 501/IDM JuniorTM , VPIDM, and Mini IDM suite of tactical data link products. Our IDMs are being integrated and deployed in a variety of military applications worldwide.
The IDM interfaces to existing voice radios in military aircraft/manpacks/etc. to transmit and receive digital data. Designed to "communicate with anything", IDMs support a wide range of protocols and are offered in a variety of form factors for easy integration into systems with limitations in space, power and cooling.
The use of the IDM is being expanded to cover Weapons Data Links, where the ordinance contains radio/IDM hardware and receives target update messages, while providing status/instrumentation.
