The 2019 TDL Summit was a success. We had more than the expected 200 attending delegates.



"Meeting the challenges of fusing multi domain networks and emerging technologies to outpace the ever evolving threat"

The AUS/NZ Chapter of the International Data Links Society (IDLSoc) is pleased to announce that the theme of this years Tactical Data Link (TDL) summit is "Meeting the challenges of fusing multi domain networks and emerging technologies to outpace the ever evolving threat".

We have developed an interesting and thought provoking agenda, and we are delighted to announce that MAJGEN Marcus Thompson, Head of Information Warfare, Joint Capabilities Group (JCG) is our key speaker. General Thompson will open the Summit with a presentation on Joint Force Integration that will discuss Joint C4 programs and in particular the Australian Defence Force (ADF) Joint Data Network (JDN) and how it enables situational awareness and Joint Command & Control.

Dr Gina Kingston, Director of Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Design will then present on centre-led guidance, before WGCDR Darren Ross, Deputy Director Joint Command and Control, JCG will debate the ADF JDN in more detail. Mr Adam Purtell, Program Director MTN Sub Program, Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) will explore how to support the warfighter by acquiring and sustaining a TDL capability. A mixture of industry and ADF personnel will deliver the remaining presentations, with the all three services discussing the challenges that they face now and anticipate in the future.

The aim of the Summits agenda is to provide an open forum to facilitate discussion between ADF and defence industry representatives enabling the development of a common understanding of TDL capability issues and potential solutions. This common understanding will assist defence industry, as a fundamental input to capability (FIC) to better support the ADF to meet the challenges that will be discussed. We look forward to welcoming delegates to a stimulating day of discussion. Further detailed information can be found within the agenda.
