2022 Tactical Data Link Training Dates Confirmed


SyntheSys Defence is pleased to announce the confirmed training dates for 2022 Tactical Data Link (TDL) Training.

SyntheSys Defence is proud to offer a range of TDL training, including Joint Range Extension Application Protocol (JREAP), Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) Link 16, Link 11, Link 22, Network Design and Data Link Manager/Interface Control Officer (DLM/ICO) courses. These courses are designed to enhance the understanding of various TDL systems, operations, and responsibilities while providing a solution to the formal training gap that exists across both the Joint and Allied enterprise. Our data link training courses are all created in accordance with ATDLP-5.55 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) training standards.

Highlights of some of the courses include:

The DLM/ICO course is our flagship, 15-day course which is designed to provide working knowledge to personnel whose role is to plan, build, manage, interact, develop and engage in Multi TDL Architectures and operations.  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 JREAP course covers both the Joint Range Extension (JRE) Processor Hardware and the Application Protocol (AP) as defined in MIL-STD-3011.  The course explains the benefits of the JREAP and provides the technical detail of how the system works.

The Introduction to Link 22 course, gives students a sound theoretical knowledge of all aspects of Link 22 operations.  The areas covered by the course include system architecture, network structures and an in-depth look at the message catalogue and the capabilities provided by those messages.  Detailed message transactions can be demonstrated using the TACTX simulator.

The MIDS Link 16 Network Design and Management course provides students with a comprehensive understanding of MIDS Link 16 Network Design and Management.  Emphasis is placed on practical training, with students utilising both simulation and operational software applications. Students who wish to learn the more complex and advanced areas of MIDS Network Design (ND) are encouraged to undertake our 8-day Advanced Network Design training course.

With all these courses comes free advanced access to our SyntheSys Defence Community Portal.  In there, students have access to all course material along with our full inventory of TDL-related training recordings, downloads, resources, and tools.
