Course Description

Link 16 Engineering, Design and Testing Training is a 3-day practical training course covering engineering and design, testing and operations of Link 16 Tactical Data Link (TDL). It will provide knowledge to assist operators, users, and engineers in developing, producing, operating, and sustaining Link 16 TDL system and capabilities on multiple platforms and tactical assets. Link 16 engineering and testing is an integral part of the Systems Engineering Process (SEP) which identifies levels of performance and assists the Link 16 developer in correcting deficiencies. Link 16 Design, Engineering and Testing Training enables the Link 16 engineering, design, testing and certification and identifies the limitations (technical or operational), Critical Operational Issues (COI) of the Link 16 system under testing so that they can be resolved prior to operation and deployment.
