The Tactical Data Link (TDL) Product Support Group (PSG) has been renamed the Tactical Digital Information Link - Technical Advice and Lexicon for Enabling Simulation (TADIL TALES) PDG & PSG. The TDL PSG was approved by the SISO Standards Activity Committee (SAC) and Executive Committee (EXCOM). This group supersedes the Link 16 Product Development Group and will transition that group’s discussion board and document library.
The TADIL TALES PDG & PSG will support the approved SISO-STD-002 Link 16 standard for IEEE 1278.1a (DIS) and IEEE 1516 (HLA) by providing a central point for interpretations of SISO-STD-002 product language, providing help desk support to the SISO community, and accepting, developing, and maintaining problem/change reports to support future product revisions. The PDG & PSG will also support other developing tactical data link standards using DIS and HLA, specifically Link 11/11B, SADL, IBS-I and IBS-S, Link 22, and VMF, and any future SISO standards developed and approved for tactical datalink simulation.
