2013 in Reflection

As 2013 comes to a close, it is a good opportunity to reflect on the successes of the year for the team here at SyntheSys.

Tony Castle and his Training team have been very busy providing training on Link 16, VMF, JRE(AP), network management and TNDS training both in the UK and across Europe. We also extended our training capabilities into non-military domain with Systems Engineering in support of the UN International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna.

Mark Hudspeth and his MLTF team have been very successful on TDL Testing with the Multi Link Test Facility for UK and International Interoperability Trials, support to the F-35 Lightning II, and the Joint Maritime Theatre Missile Defence Experimentation.  We look forward to the increased use of MLTF in 2014 to support interoperability testing between UK and other nations.

Our IBM team was bolstered in the summer when Hitesh Bechar joined us from IBM. Hitesh has made an immediate impact in the provision of technical support and delivery of IBM Rational technical services to our clients. SyntheSys have been supporting new and existing IBM Rational clients as the technology of software and systems development increases ever more rapidly.

We wish all our customers, clients, colleagues and partners very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
