Stauder Technologies successfully completed the Physical Configuration Audit of the Hyde™ Advanced VMF Terminal (AVT) the week of 26 October. With this milestone completed, Stauder will begin the Hyde™ AVT production phase with the first Hyde™ AVT scheduled to be delivered in the 2nd Quarter of CY16.
Government personnel from the AV-8B Program Office, AV-8B Joint Systems Support Activity (JSSA), and the Defense Contractor Management Agency (DCMA) witnessed as Stauder verified the Hyde™ AVT technical data package and demonstrated manufacturing processes and procedures through assembly and test of the first article unit.
“We were impressed with Stauder Technologies’ professionalism, production preparations, and facility organization and cleanliness,” said Karen Rae, AVT Product Manager of the AV-8B JSSA.
“Stauder Technologies is proud that the government has audited our manufacturing capabilities and given us the ‘green light’ to continue production preparations. We look forward to the opportunity to deliver a product that helps ensure digital interoperability and combat relevancy for the AV-8B aircraft,” said Jerry Stauder, President of Stauder Technologies.
The Hyde™ AVT, part of Stauder Technologies’ Hyde™ family of battlefield interoperability devices, is designed to be a cost effective “plug and play” avionics box that allows legacy military aircraft to communicate over the latest military digital networks. The Hyde™ AVT is packaged with the widely deployed JECL® digital interoperability software solution, and the ”plug-and-play” design was integrated with the current AV-8B architecture with the cost-benefit of not requiring any changes to the aircraft’s Operational Flight Program (OFP) software, electrical connections, or mechanical interfaces.
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 and 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, MO. Stauder Technologies was recently recognized by “Aviation Week and Space Technology” as one of the industry’s “Top Companies to Watch.”
