SyntheSys Maintains ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Certification

After a recent audit, we are thrilled to announce that we continue to maintain our ISO 9001:2015 quality certification after demonstrating that our quality management systems and procedures meet the requirements outlined in the standard.

The ongoing certification was commissioned by the Global Certification Body, National Quality Assurance (NQA), which is an independent provider of certification services.

ISO 9001 is a quality management system standard which helps organisations ensure that they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders, whilst meeting statutory and regulatory requirements related to products or programmes.  Its general objective is to improve quality and we are continually committed to meeting the requirements of the certification.

Jacqui Readman, who led the certification audit commented:

‘’Whilst this certification is widely recognised as de-facto standard in many different sectors, we certainly do not take this achievement lightly.  As an SME working across several industries, it’s vital that we have one common quality management procedure implemented.  This ensures that customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders receive the same, high quality service from us.  The processes and procedures required to achieve certification also ensure our staff have confidence in work produced, in the knowledge that they supported via effective quality practices.’’

Data Link Manager / Interface Control Officer Summer Course Planned and Open for Registration | 12 – 30 July 2021 | Oeiras, Portugal


A New Year Brings a New Opportunity to Access Leading Tactical Data Link (TDL) Training! 

We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for our next classroom-based Data Link Manager (DLM) / Interface Control Office (ICO) course which will be taking place in Oeiras, Portugal between 12 – 30 July 2021.

The DLM/ICO course is designed to catapult individuals with little or no knowledge of TDL’s and associated responsibilities to a stage where they can successfully and efficiently carry out their duties.  The course provides students with a fundamental understanding of various TDLs, then, using state of the art simulation tools, practically applies this knowledge to real world scenarios.  The DLM/ICO course is based on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and United States (US) documentation fused with instructor experience.  The course relies on practical exercises and assignments which gives a working understanding of the course concepts.

If you are part of a Data Link Management Cell, or perhaps a Multi-Tactical Data Link Network Planner or Designer and would like to strengthen and deepen your knowledge base, this course is for you.

Or perhaps you are involved in TDL sustainment, TDL procurement or multi-TDL evaluation and would like a more rounded and comprehensive understanding of key TDL concepts and themes?

The DLM/ICO course caters to personnel from many different backgrounds and ultimately provides working knowledge to personnel whose role it is to plan, build, manage, interact, develop, and engage in Multi-Tactical Data Link Architectures and operations.

For more information about the course, details of the full syllabus or information on how to register to attend the course, click here.  To discuss your training requirements or to secure your place on the July course, please contact training@synthesys.co.uk.

Hosting a course provides several benefits, please let us know if you would like to host a future DLM/ICO or any other type of TDL related course.
