    USAF MH-53J upgraded by the Pave Low IV program. Introduced in 1998, aircraft received the IDAS/MATT (Interactive Defensive Avionics System/Multi-Mission Advanced Tactical Terminal) which provide real-time access to the total battlefield situation. A color, multifunctional, night-vision compatible digital map screen is the most visible hardware in the system. Located on the helicopter instrument panel, the display gives an MH-53 crew a clearer situation awareness. They were retired in 2008.
