The Airborne DACAS systems will include a Stauder Technologies Hyde™ “Smart HUB”, a Combat Net Radio and Gusto-Air™ software, operating on a commercial Android tablet. The Hyde™ provides the bridge between existing military radio equipment and the latest cutting-edge technology available in the commercial marketplace. The Hyde™ will be packaged with the widely deployed Joint Edge Communications Link (JECL®) digital interoperability software, to handle all available Networks and Platforms planning to participate in the test event.

“Stauder Technologies is pleased to have been selected by the USAF for this integration and demonstration event,” said Jerry Stauder, president of Stauder Technologies.

“This is another step in our journey to improve digital interoperability across ground equipment, aircraft and militaries throughout the world. We look forward to supporting this important international test event.”

Stauder Technologies recognizes the transformational move toward a digital battlefield, and the associated need for operating in a network-centric environment, which means enabling precision targeting data and blue force data to be moved accurately and rapidly.

The company’s key focus is on interoperable solutions, utilizing Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) that communicate across the broad spectrum of data formats utilized by various militaries, platforms and agencies.

Stauder Technologies was founded in 1997 and is located just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. Stauder Technologies was recently recognized by “Aviation Week and Space Technology” as one of the industry’s “Top Companies to Watch.”
