Our personnel provide in-depth experience of the operation and management of TDLs, including the development of TDL network management procedures and the related infrastructure necessary to support operations in all theatres of warfare.
In particular, our staff capability includes former UK Joint Data Link Management Organisation (JDLMO), network design and planning specialists who provide the most up-to-date advice, support, and training for our Customers.
The JDLMO is responsible for all UK TDL network management. We have provided support to the JDLMO, including development of requirements for the management of the general UK data link infrastructure and contributing to the JDLMO Concept of Operations (CONOPS), recognising the central position of Link 16 in UK TDL policy.
Outside the UK, we have supported the Swedish interoperability programme, providing Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for their network management organisation and network management workshops for their personnel.
We also provide advice on all matters relating to obtaining the agreement of civil air traffic authorities for clearance to use Link 16 in all relevant airspace. We provide safety cases to meet FCAs and ensure network management encompasses related restrictions.
