It’s as simple as swapping out the box. The same technology developed by Stauder Technologies to extend the digital interoperability of the AV-8B Harrier, is now available for F-16s.

Among the first to capitalize on the newly available capability, the Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) completed its flight tests and accepted delivery of HydeDM™302 tactical data link in December.

Contracting with Stauder Technologies, Denmark leads the charge to make F-16s operationally relevant in the increasingly critical Digitally Aided Close Air Support mission by replacing the outdated IDM 302, which uses obsolete digital messaging technology, with Stauder’s HydeDM™302.

With a simple swap to HydeDM™ 302 right by aircraft maintainers, allied F-16 operating countries around the world become immediately interoperable with all NATO and coalition JTAC ground kits, and virtually any other VMF capable airborne platform.

“We’re happy to have delivered HydeDM’s ahead of schedule to satisfy an urgent need by the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO),” said Jerry Stauder, CEO of Stauder Technologies. “This turnkey enhancement gets the RDAF F-16s into today’s net-centric joint fight.”

The HydeDM™ 302 is a member of the Stauder Technologies Hyde™ family of battlefield interoperability systems, designed to be a low cost “plug-and-play” avionics replacement. The HydeDM™ 302 is packaged with the Joint Effects Coordination Link (JECL®) digital interoperability engine, which guarantees compatibility with other Digitally Aided Close Air Support (DACAS) systems.
