Link 16 Training for Managers Course Hands-on

Link-16 training for managers is designed to help managers understand the Link-16, how it works, tools, and techniques associated with it.

Tactical Data Links (TDL) delivers fundamental communications channels among all the forces in operation to give support interoperability. The implementation of strict, well-known guidelines makes sure that tactical data is communicated safely and consistently to all force components and hence is a crucial enabler to Battlespace Management (BM) and Shared Situational Awareness (SSA) in functions.

However, the advantages of Link 16 cannot be understood and operated without using complicated tools, highly educated staff, and great association. Link-16 training for managers helps the managers of various units to understand and seek for the functional actions that are crucial to developing Link 16.
