The Daronmont Link Training Suite (DLTS) is a powerful package specifically designed to provide effective and realistic Link training to combat system operators and data link managers. The products that currently form part of the suite include:
"While the student application teaches the use of Link 11 or 16, the teacher application allows fault injection to teach Link Problem Solving"
The DLTS is designed to run on COTS hardware and operating systems. The DLTS is a complete, self-contained product suite that simulates all elements of a Link 11 or Link 16 capable platform. The DLTS is scalable and tailorable and each product typically consists of between 3 and 8 student stations, each acting as a data link node.
"The DLTS has been developed to improve the effectiveness of Link Operators so that they can maximise Link connectivity of Defence C2 systems."
Students can use their workstation as a procedural trainer, to learn the process involved in setting up and participating in a Link 11 or 16 network, then move onto a classroom wide Link network with other participants, and then across WAN to students at other defence agencies for Joint Training.
For Link Instructors, the DLTS comes with a fault injection application that allows Instructors to inject typical hardware and atmospheric problems into the DLTS. For example Instructors can cause the radio transmitter or other equipment on a student's workstation to fail. Students analyse the information they have and how the system is behaving to determine the cause of and correct faults in the Link network.
The Daronmont Link 11 Training Suite (DLTS11) provides Link 11 training to combat system operators and data link managers. Each student station acts as a Link 11 data link node. All stations are connected via a classroom wide simulated RF network.
The DLTS11 simulates all elements of a Link 11 capable platform:
The DLTS11 provides training in all aspects of Link 11 operations including:
The Daronmont Link 16 Training Suite (DLTS16) provides Link 16 training to combat system operators and data link managers. Each student station acts as a Link 16 data link node. All stations are connected via a classroom wide simulated RF network.
The DLTS16 simulates all elements of a Link 16 capable platform:
DLTS16 uses the .pf MIDS load file format. Operational network loads can be loaded into DLTS16 and tested.
The DLTS16 provides training in all aspects of Link 16 operations including:
Using both DLTS11 and DLTS16 it is possible to forward between one Link and the other. In a classroom network some students can run DLTS11 and others DLTS16, one student can configure their system to be a forwarding node between the two networks.
