Course Description

MIDS JTRS Systems Engineering Course is a 3-day intensive course provide MIDS JTRS engineering, advanced Link 16 topics, Link 16 modernization, advanced cryptos and other principles and practices to optimize Link 16 and TDL performance. Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) is a family of software-programmable and hardware?configurable digital radios intended to provide increased interoperability, flexibility, and adaptability to support numerous tactical communications requirements. A Core Framework, providing a standard operating environment, must be implemented on every hardware set. Interoperability among radio sets is increased because the same waveform software can be easily ported to all radios. A waveform is the entire set of radio and/or communications functions that occur from the user input to the radio frequency output and vice versa. JTRS waveform implementation consists of a Waveform Application Code, Radio Set Devices and Radio System Applications.
