Workshop 11: Datalink & SA

In this session, we cover the following topics:

  • Understanding the MIDS Datalink Link 16 and IFF system,
  • Understanding the Situational Awareness display,
  • Discussion on general situational awareness,
  • Discussion on current wartime theater temperament changes,
  • Discussion on updated radio frequencies,
  • Pilot Proficiency Demonstration,
  • Discuss next sessions homework

Course Prerequisites:
– Watch “DCS: F/A-18C Hornet – Throttle Designator Controller
– Watch “Datalink and Situational Awareness”
– Watch “SA Page, Pilot Identification (PLID)”
– Watch “DCS: F/A-18C Hornet – A/A Waypoint and BRA Calls”

Note: As we continue our path of learning the F-18, each workshop includes a little more realism. You will need to manage comm frequencies for the various BLUE assets. EASY COMMS remains enabled, but your radios for those assets will change to that frequency!

“Raise your awareness and share your uniqueness to the world.
