Link 1111B, otherwise known as TADIL A and TADIL B, has been used by U.S. Services and NATO nations for many years. However, the NATO Standard Agreement STANAG 5602 Standard Interface for Multiple Platform Link Evaluation SIMPLE does not fully describe the radio frequency network environment, which is required to model a more robust Link 1111B operation. In addition, the IEEE 1278.1a standard does not provide a way to model the Link 1111B RF network, only send the data as non-standard, user-defined Signal Protocol Data Unit PDU. A SISO Link 1111B Product Development Group PDG has been formed, and has started working on a DIS and HLA standard for Link 1111B transport and network modeling. The Link 1111B DIS and HLA standard will be developed using many of the Link 16 methods and procedures. This paper presents a Link 1111B model approach, including implementation of various Link 1111B TDL message types e.g. Roll Call, Net Sync, Short Broadcast. In addition, the first draft of the DIS Signal and Transmitter PDUs, and HLA Link 1111B BOM will be presented.
