Link 16 Network Design Tool (NDT) Version 2.0

Link 16 Network Design is one of the most complex and technical skills in the TDL world. Link 16 Network Designers often train for years under instruction before mastering this skill. But what happens when a country doesn’t have qualified Network Designers and doesn’t have years to conduct their training? What happens when a country needs a network designed today?

The Network Design Tool (NDT) was designed to meet the unique requirements of new Link 16 nations and inexperienced Network Designers. NDT was designed with the user in mind. Its operator-intuitive configurable interface puts everything up front. There are no hidden windows or backdoor data entry areas. In fact, the display changes automatically when operator selects different data on the screen, showing the available data entry options for that selection. Moreover, NDT is the only Link 16 Network Design system that enables fully automatic Network Design functionality.

NDT enables the operator to create a validated Link 16 Network Design with the push of a button. NDT has the ability to import an XML based Network Design Request, which is created by the Network Design Request Tool (NDRT). NDT automatically interprets every value of the request in order to populate every variable of the connectivity matrix. Operators can then generate network load files, NETMAN T/1 INDE files, or manually modify the Network Design if necessary.
