MIDS Link 16 Online Course Open for Registration

 


Link 16 is the standard by which other systems are measured when transmitting and receiving real-time tactical data using links between network participants.  In fact, Link 16 has been credited as the key factor for saving lives in multiple theatres of operations due to the secure, increased situational awareness the system provides.  Training is now more relevant than ever to ensure you keep abreast of technological enhancements in Tactical Data Links.  In terms of maintaining and maximising awareness during software and hardware updates, it is crucial that personnel have a strong knowledge of Link 16 at both an operational and technical level.

If you are currently involved in the implementation, upgrade, management or extension of Link 16, our Introduction to Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) Link 16 online training will assist you within your role.  The course will run between 5th and 8th July 2021 and covers both technical and operational employment of MIDS Link 16 and aims to give a balanced understanding of technical and operational characteristics.

Our proven online course delivery offers a flexible and cost-effective way of upskilling yourself or members of your team.  Pricing information for these courses is available on application; please contact us via: training@synthesys.co.uk

SyntheSys Technologies becomes an INCOSE Endorsed Training Provider

An important part of our operating philosophy is ‘integrity’ and we believe one way of maintaining integrity is to have credible, endorsed products and services.  Which is why we are thrilled to announce that we have achieved the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Endorsed Training Provider status.

The scheme aims to differentiate systems engineering training providers by verifying that training meets a set of INCOSE standards.  The standards focus on organisational activity, capability, course portfolio, competencies and reviews, as an indicator of training excellence.

Currently, SyntheSys joins the scheme as one of only three UK organisations to have met the requirements of the assessment and we are confident this programme will give the Systems Engineering community a valuable criterion for selecting training providers.

SyntheSys Maintains ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Certification

After a recent audit, we are thrilled to announce that we continue to maintain our ISO 9001:2015 quality certification after demonstrating that our quality management systems and procedures meet the requirements outlined in the standard.

The ongoing certification was commissioned by the Global Certification Body, National Quality Assurance (NQA), which is an independent provider of certification services.

ISO 9001 is a quality management system standard which helps organisations ensure that they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders, whilst meeting statutory and regulatory requirements related to products or programmes.  Its general objective is to improve quality and we are continually committed to meeting the requirements of the certification.

Jacqui Readman, who led the certification audit commented:

‘’Whilst this certification is widely recognised as de-facto standard in many different sectors, we certainly do not take this achievement lightly.  As an SME working across several industries, it’s vital that we have one common quality management procedure implemented.  This ensures that customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders receive the same, high quality service from us.  The processes and procedures required to achieve certification also ensure our staff have confidence in work produced, in the knowledge that they supported via effective quality practices.’’
