VMF Simple Enough for Combat

FAC-Utility™ makes VMF simple enough for combat. JTACs can send and receive a variety of messages from 9-Lines to friendly points without coordinating VMF settings prior to the mission for both aircraft and other JTACs.this is the first truly operator friendly VMF solution.

 


 

FAC-Utility Suite
Integration

The Forward Air Control Utility Suite (FAC-US™) allows the Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) to decisively deliver fires to the battleeld from virtually any asset available. FAC-US™ is made up of two components, FAC-Utility™ and FAC-Message Emulator™.

Mission Configurable

The APEx Predator System (APS) and MTS allow a warfighter to transition from computer operation to direct tactical engagement in seconds with a wearable system that is incorporated into a compact plate carrier system, without compromising any of the certified ballistics protection. A warfighter doesn’t need to stop, put down gear and lose time in a stationary position while powering up or repacking equipment. Black Diamond’s goal was to approach the wearable computer solution as a complete system, providing true “on the move” performance and situational awareness for a variety of applications, including targeting (JTACs, TACPs and Forward Observers), Combat Medics, Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Combat Weather and Military Intelligence.

 

APEx Predator System

You can’t choose your mission, but you can choose your gear. Modeled after Black Diamond’s Modular Tactical System, the APEx Predator system enables communications from tactical data radios and peripherals to commercial tablets and computers. Command and control from a single solution means enhanced situational awareness.

Power
Management

Employing Black Diamond’s power management system allows you to power and charge your tactical solution from a single battery system (5590/2590), ensuring you’re operational when you need to be.

“Trickle-Charge”
Mode

In battery trickle-charge mode, the Wedge is designed to maintain the charge of the installed radio battery and slowly recharge (a.k.a., trickle-charge) that radio battery. In this mode, the wedge will keep the radio battery topped off except during times of extended radio.

Battery Elimination

Battery eliminator mode reduces weight of the entire system by removing the need for the radio battery and any spare batteries that might be carried. It also reduces the height of the radio, and when positioned at the front right or front left of the body, this leaves extra rooms for shouldering a weapon.
