PLEXSYS has been integrated into the Joint Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) to Tactical Data Link (TDL) Modernization (JITM) Quick Reaction Test (QRT), which was directed to develop a procedure for the integration of national ISR data into Link 16 architecture and to update Military Standard (MIL-STD) 6016. The JITM QRT team, under the oversight of the Air Force Joint Test Program Office (AFJO), tested and validated new message sets and applied them to the next iteration of MIL-STD 6016 to provide more accurate, complete and timely national intelligence to the warfighter.

“The work accomplished during the JITM QRT to grow Link 16capabilities and integrate these national feeds will assuredly enhance thecapabilities of the warfighter at the operational C2 level where the JointInterface Control Officer (JICO) executes,” said Greg Kraut, PLEXSYS vicepresident of Business Development and Marketing. “Including the PLEXSYSdata-links simulation training solution as an organic capability within theUltra-ATS JET system guarantees an immersive LVC training capability tailoredto the specific requirements associated with operational C2 warfighting.”

On loan from Ultra Electronics for the duration of the JITMQRT, the JET software suite is the first desktop simulation capabilityinstalled and employed at AFJO. This temporary capability has proven to be a perfecttool for the JITM QRT and has provided a template for futuregovernment-industry partnerships in support of test solutions.

Field Testing

During Field Test 1, the JET suite allowed the test team toreplicate typical workstations for the joint track data coordinators and seniorair defense officers such as those found in air operation centers. Overall, theJET software enabled the creation and presentation of a realistic andinteractive test environment for the JITM QRT. Additionally, the use of the JETsoftware facilitated data collection in support of the QRT’s CriticalOperational Issues and served as a jumping-off point for Joint WarfighterAdvisory Group (JWAG) discussions about Link 16 operator features.

The JITM QRT team executed their second and final field testfrom October 1-26, 2018. The team presented the results to the community ofinterest at the third and final JWAG, November 19-20, 2018, at AFJOHeadquarters, Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. The QRT closed down on February 5,2019.
