Yuma, AZ (PRWEB) November 3, 2010
Stauder Technologies successfully demonstrated a smartphone based extension to their StrikeLink® family of digital fires systems. The smartphone application, Gusto™, was exercised by the Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron One (MAWTS-1) during their fall Weapons and Tactics Instructor (WTI) course. Capabilities shown include display of friendly locations, text messaging, target creation and nomination. Proven during this evaluation was that the power of StrikeLink® can be extended to a smartphone, giving the warfighter a lightweight, instant on, system to safely identify targets and then digitally pass them up the fires chain. In the months to come, Stauder plans to demonstrate follow on releases with even more tactically relevant capabilities.
Stauder Technologies is a privately held firm, founded in 1997, which has evolved into a leading provider of targeting, geodetic and communications software for the United States military. Its StrikeLink® system is designed to support ground troops and saves lives by distinguishing between enemy targets and friendly forces and reducing the human error and time involved in the manual method of target identification, location and handoff. Stauder’s offices and manufacturing complex are located in St. Peters Commercial Park in St. Peters, Missouri, located just outside of St. Louis, Missouri.
