SyntheSys Attend JRE Operators Working Group

By invitation of the Engility Corporation, the manufacturers of Joint Range Extension (JRE), Tony Castle, SyntheSys Training Manager, will be attending the JRE Operators Working Group (JRE OWG) which will take place in Mission Valley, San Diego, USA, between 29 April and 1 May 14.  
The conference will focus on the following areas:
  • Exploration of  JRE Integration Strategies including insight into JRE Software changes as well as future enhancements.
  • Hands-on experience with JRE Version 5.3.
  • JRE-Enabled Tablet and TacView (JET) developments.
  • Opportunity to provide feedback and learn about prioritisation of track messages, Intercept Vector/Closest Point of Approach display, JREAP-C Multi-Cast, 3D Graphic, VMF and more...
  •  Navigation of the JRE Situational Awareness Display and JRE Micro-Light, and other GUI enhancement
  • The use of  simulation for Data Link training using the JRE simulation software (JDOTS) plug-in.
  • Assessment of Challenges and Solutions in peer-to-peer Discussions including:
    • Engagement in round-table discussions with operational users and solution providers. 
    • Sharing of best practices and lessons learned from the field
Attendance at this conference will allow our staff to increase their existing knowledge of JRE and its operational use. This augmented knowledge can then be used to further enhance the service we provide to our JRE and JREAP customers.

If you would like more information regarding our experience at the JRE OWG, keep an eye on out for future releases. For general enquiries regarding our training, or any other services, please contact us at

Headquarters Allied Air Command Procure SyntheSys Training Services

Headquarters Allied Air Command (HQ AIRCOM) have recently contracted SyntheSys to provide a 15 day Multi TDL Data Link Manager (DLM)/Interface Control Officer (ICO) training course. The course will be held at CAOC Uedem, Germany in June 2014. Participating students will be drawn from HQ AIRCOM, CAOCs Uedem and Torrejon, NATO DARS  Deployable Air Command and Control Capability (DACCC) and national units. The students will come from 6 different nations - Italy, Norway, USA, Turkey, The Netherlands and Denmark. The training, which is based on proven NATO procedures, will encompass the disciplines necessary to ensure the smooth and efficient running of the multi TDL environment.  Theoretical lessons will be reinforced with exercises, and the use of simulation, to bring the learning to life. For more information read our Datasheet, contact us at or call +44 (0)1947 821464.

New Tasking: UK MOD tasks SyntheSys to provide TDL test and acceptance expertise

SyntheSys today announces acceptance of a 14 month contract to support the Project Team (PT) for the A400M military transport aircraft to progress the MIDS/Link 16 integrated test evaluation and acceptance plan (ITEAP).  The project also includes ongoing MIDS integration support to the A400M MIDS/Link 16 programme.

This kind of testing is no mean feat; TDL testing is a through-life activity from checking the theoretical implementation, through standards conformance testing, to live trials.  It is conducted through both paper-based scrutiny and rig-based testing.  SyntheSys’ proven experience of developing test strategies, preparing test scripts, and analysis makes the company number one choice for this task.  Utilising its ‘VECTOR’ portfolio of testing services, the Company is able to apply comprehensive systems engineering practices to establish evidence that systems operate correctly and interoperate effectively with other military platforms, not only adding overall value to any given project but ensuring that our armed services are operating with the best quality equipment.

‘We look forward to supporting the A400M PT in setting to work platform acceptance’ commented SyntheSys’ Technical Director, John Miller.  ‘This is another great example of the way in which our VECTOR services combine our TDL expertise and use of the Multi-Link Test Facility program to provide a very low cost and effective way of assuring tactical communications systems requirements are delivered.’
