Innovative Concepts Inc. in McLean, VA, who was recently acquired by Herley Industries received an $8.5 million modification to a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for Software Upgrade of the Improved Data Modem (IDM).
The IDM plays a key role in the U.S. Army’s “Digitization of the Battlefield” efforts. The IDM V304 IDM is the hardware system of choice to support all Army Aviation systems. It provides communications, routing and gateway functionality to support communications and data over the Combat Net Radio System, the U.S. Army’s Fire Support Net and the Tactical Internet. The latest versions allow communications support for both air and ground forces, and support Army, Marines, and Air Force operations.
