Abstract: The Defence Tactical Information Exchange (TIE) environment is more than just a collection of communications hardware. The TIE domain requires skilled personnel and supporting systems to raise, implement, maintain and operate Tactical Data Link (TDL) networks. Hence, this domain can be viewed as a joint enabling capability. To ensure the effective integration of TDLs in joint operations, a systems approach was used to develop a joint capability model of a Multi-Tactical Data Link Network. This model identifies generic roles, activities and interactions, exhibiting specific patterns relevant to this type of joint capability, adding to the domain knowledge of TDLs in the context of joint operations.
DSTO’s Joint Operations Division employed a Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) methodology to develop a generic and executable TIE joint capability model. The model allows solution independent identification of functional requirements for this increasingly complex domain and provides a supporting knowledge repository and information model. This generic model is a resource that can be used by projects introducing new or integrating with existing data network architectures.
