SyntheSys Data Link Manager/Interface Control Officer Training Programme 2016

Following on from our successful courses in 2015 in Norway, CAOC Uedem and for the UKJDLMO we are now ready to embark on our 2016 programme.  The first course will be held at Karup Air Base in Denmark, from 29 Feb until 18 Mar 2016.

The course is designed with particular emphasis on practical exercises and the subsequent use of simulation and real world tools.  To progressively challenge students on their understanding of the Multi TDL Planning process, they will be tasked to create several complex Multi TDL architectures based upon real-life scenarios.  Students are then asked to brief their Multi TDL plan which is subsequently validated through the use of simulation.  This check of understanding provides an invaluable learning experience and enables them to confirm that their architecture would work in reality.

Students will be instructed on Link 1, 11, 11B, 16, 22, Variable Message Format and Joint Range Extension Application Protocol making it a truly Multi Tactical Data Link course.  Once armed with the requisite theoretical knowledge, the students continuously utilise real-life operational software and simulation systems to reinforce that theory.  The tools include: Daronmont Data Link Training Suite (DLTS), Diginext TACTX, Hewlett Packard TDL Network Design Station (TNDS) and Engility Joint Range Extension (JRE) software.  These added benefits allow personnel to swiftly grasp the complexities that surround TDLs and their operational use.

Registration for this course is now open. To book a place, or to get more detailed information, please contact us at . We are pleased to say that prices have been held at the 2015 rate! Places are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.
