The three-and-a-half-day course will be taking place in Lincoln, United Kingdom 16th - 19th July 2019 with two-and-a-half-days focus on MIDS Link 16 being immediately followed by a single day’s JREAP training. The course is modular in approach and as such, delegates are invited to join the combined course, or tailor attendance based on training requirements.
The Link 16 element is primarily aimed at those personnel who require a balanced understanding of MIDS Link 16. Consequently, the syllabus has been designed to cover both technical and operational employment of MIDS Link 16. Students can expect to examine and study elements such as MIDS Architecture, Interoperability, Terminals & Block Upgrade 2, MIDS Initialisation / Synchronisation as well as Surveillance and Weapons Operations.
The JREAP element of the training explains the benefits of the JREAP protocol and also provides technical detail of how the system works. The day starts with a basic introduction to JREAP and builds on this knowledge by examining Full Stack and Application Layer, JREAP messages and an overview of relevant standards. The latter part of the course is practical in nature and utilises the Operational Tasking (OPTASK) Link JRE Segment 11.1; we will spend time operating the SAIC JRE Software.
The course has been designed to encompass both the NATO Allied Tactical Data Link Publications (ATDLPs) and the United States (US) Military Standards (MIL-STDs) documentation. Furthermore, the course has utilised operator procedures detailed within both NATO ATDLP-7.33 and US Joint Multi-TADIL Operating Procedures (JMTOP) (Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Manual CJCSM 6120.01).
