Link 16 with Network Enabled Weapons

3-Day Course

$1990 per person


Link 16 Network Enabled Weapons (NEW) integrate enhanced Precision Guided Munitions into existing Link 16 networks. Positive weapons control (pre / post launch) enhances accuracy, supports target adjustments, retargeting, BDA, and weapon abort. Further, the weapon updates its location and status throughout its mission, increasing situation awareness. The Link 16 and Network Enabled Weapons course contains 21 instructional modules that provide an excellent foundation to Link 16 technology and operations. This is followed by an in-depth description of the operational capabilities, design, message structure, and implementation.

Network Enabled Weapons to Link 16 is the first major message upgrade since Link 16 imagery, and one of the greatest leaps forward in our ability to aggressively take the fight to the enemy since Link 16 was introduced.

The Link 16 Network Enabled Weapons course not only explains this new capability in great detail, it offers insight into where it may lead when coupled with Link 16 Enhanced Throughput, Concurrent Multi-Netting, and Concurrent Contention Receive.

The course contains hundreds of graphics and animations designed specifically to help the student visualize how the capability is delivered in the joint battlespace.
