Variable Message Format (VMF) & Combat Net Radio (CNR) Planning Course
VMF & CNR Planning is aimed at personnel directly involved with the planning process.
A one day planning course and as a follow on from VMF & CNR Basic Course. The day will support students in both developing and expanding their understanding of the critical requirements involved in the successful delivery of VMF & CNR planning; recognising the issues surrounding equipment interoperability, identifying URN requirements and the allocation of suitable addresses. The afternoon will see students undertake a basic planning exercise involving simple VMF/CNR networks to perform a check of understanding of all learning outcomes.
VMF & CNR Planning is aimed at personnel directly involved with the planning process. Prior experience of TDL planning is advantageous but not necessary.
