This is a three-day, instructor led delivery of basic level Link 16 knowledge. This course design focuses on the operator in mind - relating the technical capabilities and procedural actions an operator must consider when using Link 16. Attendees of this course will understand the relationship between necessary planning and operational documents, such as the OPTASK Link, and the technical functions of Link 16 terminals. Attendees will also be able to recognize the different access modes of a Link 16 terminal within the TDMA architecture and understand the impacts these different modes have on operations.
The number of delegates is only limited to the size of the room. TCG instructors have provided this course to as few as one student and to as many as near 200 students in a given setting.
While this course has the operator as the priority user of the knowledge, it is valuable knowledge for engineers, program managers, and platform designers. New or novice users of Link 16 will benefit greatly as will anyone needing a refresher on Link 16 knowledge.
TCG is proud to have a full complement of talented instructors, each with decades of experience in the employment of tactical data links. This group of instructors are all Joint Interface Control Officers (JICO) and all three were lead instructors at the Joint Staff, Joint Interoperability Division (JID) before joining TCG.
