SyntheSys Successfully Delivers Data Link Manager (DLM)/ Interface Control Office (ICO) Training as Hosted by the Combined Air Operations Centre (CAOC)

Once again, we are delighted to announce that a group of personnel have successfully completed our Data Link Manager/Interface Control Officer training course. The course was hosted by the Combined Air Operations Centre Uedem in Germany, with a total of 14 personnel from Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Lithuania, UK and the US.  This diverse range of students enhanced and supported an enjoyable learning environment.

Students were initially provided instruction on Link 1, 11, 11B, 16, 22, VMF and JREAP before progressing to a series of complex operationally focused Multi-TDL planning exercises.  Utilising the Daronmont Data Link Training Suite simulation software, students were able to fully interact with the Multi-TDL architectures they had created.  Additionally, the use of the Engility JRE operational software and the newly introduced Multi-TDL Planning Tool, TacPlan, guided the students in both understanding the roles and responsibilities of a DLM/ICO and overcoming the operational challenges they could encounter.

Rick Ojeda from NATO Airbase Geilenkirchen stated “This is my second course with SyntheSys and it did not disappoint.  The combination of theory and hands-on was perfect for verifying understanding’’.

SyntheSys continues to expand and improve all of its courses utilising both simulation and operational software, so that operators will quickly grasp the sometimes difficult theoretical hurdles that working in a Multi-TDL environment can entail.
