Training Success, Frederikshavn – Data Link Manager / Interface Control Officer Course


Having enjoyed a much needed Christmas holiday break, we were right back on the road in early January and are happy to announce the successful completion of our Data Link Manager / Interface Control Officer (DLM/ICO) course, held at Frederikshavn Naval Base in Denmark from 10-28 January.

 As the DLM/ICO is responsible for the entire Tactical Data Link (TDL) interface to include both planning and execution functions, it is critical the training scope is vast and comprehensive.  Over the course of three weeks North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) members from Denmark, the Netherlands, and Norway were provided with an in depth understanding of how to plan, build, interact and subsequently manage Multi TDL architectures. 

The course focused on providing students with a series of challenging learning outcomes using practical exercises, simulation, and real-world operational software.  This interactive process promotes a cooperative learning environment, allowing each student to progress with confidence and a developed knowledge of each TDL. Through the development of this type of knowledge TDL planners and operators are better equipped to identify and execute commander’s information exchange requirements, both in training and operational environments.

 Our next stop is Nieuw Milligen, Netherlands, where we are again delivering our DLM/ICO course to a group of personnel representing various organisations within the Dutch Armed Forces.

SyntheSys is delighted to announce it has maintained Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation

Maintaining Cyber Essentials Plus is vital for SyntheSys as, not only does it manage our information security risk, it also helps us meet our ongoing contractual and supply chain needs.  

We are delighted to announce we have passed our latest assessment 5 years after our first certification.  During this time it has allowed SyntheSys to demonstrate a level of assurance to our customers by showing that security controls are in place to protect the business.  Having ‘Plus’ certification adds extra value to the company as it gives us access to an external auditor who can give SyntheSys the peace of mind that our cyber security is up to scratch.

Luke McCarthy our IT Lead expresses the need for cyber security, “As a longstanding tele-working business, the need for security across the company is our highest priority. As cyber threats become increasingly complex, it is vital that we keep our standards high and ensure we have the best possible security in place for us, and our customers.”

If you would like to hear more about the Cyber Essentials Plus certification, or the work we are doing in this area, contact:
