Nova Systems Presents at the 2018 Tactical Data Link Interoperability Summit
- Nov 15, 2018
The Australia/ New Zealand Chapter of the International Data Link Society (IDLSoc) held the 2018 Tactical Data Link (TDL) Interoperability Summit in Canberra on November 12.
The summit was held prior to the Military Communication and Information Systems (MilCIS) Conference where military and government organisations, academia, and defence industries are invited to contribute to the future direction of military communications and information systems.
The aim of the summit was to inform the Australian Defence Force (ADF), stakeholders and the wider Defence Industry community of the current and future issues concerning TDL. The focus of the TDL Interoperability Summit was to bring Defence and Industry together to develop an understanding of the issues and activities currently affecting the TDL community.
With a full schedule of speakers from both Defence and Industry, Nova Systems was delighted to be given the opportunity to deliver a presentation. TDL Specialist Paul Czajkowski, provided a thought-provoking presentation that discussed the idea of the ADF defining a new way of training their TDL managers and operators.
Concentrating on a joint service approach and considering the need for on-going coalition operations, the brief discussed the merits of utilising the best of how both the US & NATO train their personnel. Paul concluded with the view that the Australian TDL community was ready to define this new way. The aspiration being to truly create a progressive and flexible TDL learning path that suitably meets the future requirements of the ADF.
