Swedish Armed Forces Technical School Purchase the Data Link Training Suite

The Swedish Armed Forces Technical School, based in Halmstad has recently completed the purchase of the MIDS Link 16 Data Link Training Suite (DLTS). The DLTS will be used to train their personnel on the technical and operating procedures utilised for MIDS/Link 16. 

If you would like more information about DLTS, please go to http://synthesystraining.co.uk/data_link_training_suite.html . Details of our other training capabilities may also be found at http://www.synthesystraining.co.uk/index.html . Of course you can always contact us on training@synthesys.co.uk

VECTOR Service launched

SyntheSys is pleased to announce its VECTOR (Validation, Evaluation and Compliance Testing Of Requirements) service.

Based on previous experience gained from our support to the UK Multi-Link Test Facility (MLTF), VECTOR has been developed and fielded to support and sustain cost-effective national/international tactical communications and network-enabled capability testing in both synthetic and live environments. Whilst VECTOR will focus on requirements test and evaluation, it will also facilitate the preparation of test scripts and the comprehensive analysis of results from test scenarios. It is not just confined to the military domain; we fully intend to utilise VECTOR in support of civil and commercial customers with a need for requirements testing, validation and verification. VECTOR will be integrated with our SPIRIT capability to manage nations’ requirements for interoperability testing and assurance. We will be demonstrating VECTOR’s attributes and services at this year’s International Data Link Symposiumin October at Norfolk, Virginia.

SyntheSys contributes to the F-35 UK Lightning II Interoperability programme.

The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is currently participating in a series of realistic simulated battlespace environments that test its mission system tactical data interoperability with other UK military platforms in the air/maritime environments.

In the latest simulated maritime scenario, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and US Navy pilots operated the F-35 mission system using Lockheed Martin desk top simulators at BAE System's UK Samlesbury site.  The scenario saw the F-35 successfully linked with a Sea King Airborne Surveillance and Control (SKASaC) helicopter, the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier, and a Type 45 Daring-class destroyer.  SyntheSys was responsible for establishing and maintaining the data exchange mechanism used in support of the Type 45 participation.

This latest UK Lightning II Interoperability event and a previous  event saw the real systems of the Queen Elizabeth-class Carrier, Type 45 and the Sentry E-3D operated with the  UK Lightning II and other platform desk top simulators.  Both the Type 45 and Sentry E-3D arrangements are noteworthy because they utilise UK Multi-Link Test Facility (MLTF) equipment that enables tactical data exchange using real Command and Mission System equipment.

SyntheSys provides the MLTF capability to the UK MOD, operating and supporting it for all Tactical Data Interoperability testing needs.  Use of the MLTF equipment in these initial Interoperability tests provides confidence that the UK Lightning II  can be readily incorporated into the UK operational tactical data exchange architecture.

Further UK Lightning II Interoperability events are planned. A second phase of testing covering both maritime and air/land integration scenarios will run from 2014 to 2017. This phase will include other key UK military platforms and full integration of the Sea King Airborne Surveillance and Control (SKASaC) helicopter mission systems facility which also utilises the SyntheSys MLTF capability.
