New VMF Course Hits the Airwaves

In a fast-moving training environment, both operators and engineers need to recognise and subsequently educate themselves as to the latest developments and enhancements. Here at SyntheSys Defence we recognise the importance of this and ensure our training courses provide the most comprehensive learning possible.  Accordingly, we are pleased to announce our new 2.5-day VMF training course which will provide students with both technical and operational instruction on VMF over a Combat Net Radio (CNR) bearer.

The course references US MIL-STD, NATO ATDLPs and UK specification documentation, as well as other technical and operational directives, such as the operational usage of VMF over CNR.  In particular, the course focuses on the VMF Message set and syntax as described in MIL-STD-6017B, the Application Header defined in MIL-STD-2045-47001D Change 1, and the CNR Bearer protocols identified in MIL-STD-188-220D Change 1.  Discussion on the latest revisions of the document set then follows.

Interoperability between systems is discussed in depth, as well as the operational use of VMF. Furthermore, the course has utilised operator procedures detailed within the US Joint Multi-TADIL Operating Procedures. Each student will receive a copy of each of our highly regarded VMF and CNR Handbooks.  These handbooks provide excellent in-depth detail and instruction on both subjects, and act as a valuable reference.

Training Manager Paul Czajkowski said ‘Our VMF training course provides a balanced approach. We recognise that the requirements of the operational community, compared to that of engineers can, on many occasions, be very different.  Our flexible approach ensures we incorporate as many learning styles as possible, according to the role of those attending the course.  The VMF course includes subjects such as message set and syntax, CNR bearer protocols, VMF Planning, Network Access Control, through to Digitally Aided Close Air Support Block 1 & 2 Engineering Change Proposals.’
