SyntheSys will be attending the International Data Links Symposium (IDLS) 2017 in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from 30 October to 2 November.

Consultant Kevin Farquhar and Training Manager Paul Czajkowski (Ski) will be running a MIDS Link 16 & Link 22 Network Design Workshop Training Day on 30 October.

They will also be giving some interesting and apt presentations throughout the event including ‘TDLs in Coalition - Truly one team, one fight?’, ‘Multi-TDL Planning’ and ‘Network Management’.

One of the key advantages of IDLS is the spontaneous, ad hoc networking that takes place among the delegates.  Kevin said: “Ski and I are really looking forward to attending IDLS.  It will be the perfect opportunity to meet new and established contacts and customers.”

SyntheSys to Exhibit at Advanced Engineering 2017 1 & 2 November 2017 at the NEC, Birmingham, UK.

We are eagerly anticipating this year's Advanced Engineering event.  The event is the UK’s biggest annual event for professionals working within an engineering environment and aims to connect suppliers with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and top tier industry players.  We look forward to meeting professionals who work within disciplines such as Research and Development (R&D), design, test, production and procurement.

We will be on hand to discuss our systems engineering training, Systems of Systems thinking capability, cloudbaSE product and our partnership with IBM.  Our Technical consultants, Mark Williamson and Matt Mendell, will be joined by Su Ross from our associate company, SyntheSys Direct, and they look forward to having many informal chats over coffee!

For more information, visit or come along to stand N73 in the Aero Engineering area (Hall 3) to meet us at the show.
