The BDATech Story
Black Diamond Advanced Technology (BDATech), LLC., headquartered in Chandler, AZ, is a demonstrated and recognized leader in tactical computing and communications systems focusing on the dismounted operator. Black Diamond has led many successful integration efforts of the modular Tactical System as a TRL-9 product and has a track record of high user adoption rates across a broad range of mission requirements. The MTS is fielded in every U.S. service branch and with NATO and U.S. allies for a variety of applications.
Black Diamond Advanced Technology has a long history of providing the dismounted Operator with technology to ensure mission success in the rugged conditions and extreme environments in which they must operate. Our products enable and enhance real and virtual lifelines by integrating with existing fielded equipment to maximize the performance and capabilities of the organic tools the Operator has today.
Our ground forces face new threats and new enemies while simultaneously countering technology that grows more sophisticated by the day, driving the need for a tool to help them fight any threat. Our Forward Air Control-Utility Suite™ for DCAS enables the Operator to function using digital communications and therefore, be more stealthy from a radio emissions perspective than relying on voice communications that mitigate an enemy’s direction finding and counter-fire capabilities.
Additionally, with defense spending cuts across the board, Black Diamond Advanced Technology can ensure the services money is well-spent. BDATech products continue to excel in applications such as fires, communications, Tactical Electronic Warfare (TAC-EW), Explosives Ordinance Disposal (EOD), Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) applications. Using one solution to support a variety of mission sets allows for the consolidation of funding for training and support.
Interoperability of equipment and even changing its role from Insertion to extraction is paramount. Technological advancements are born from the tactics used by our enemies abroad. BDATech continually fields solutions that enable us to stay ahead and address both high and low tech threats. Former Defense Secretary Panetta commented in a speech, “…as we lose battle space infrastructure resources, SOF must utilize organic capabilities to identify, track and prosecute threats.” BDATech’s solutions work to keep the advantage on our side. Rear Admiral Pybus as the Commander, Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Command stated in a speech, “…for a small element that is more alone out there, it’s got to be able to reach back, to communicate, to bring other capabilities to bear [and] to move, so we are taking harder looks on how we do that for our forces.” This is the cornerstone of the relationship BDATech has with its customers.
