These HITL Labs and/or Simulators will be tasked to participate in defined test scenarios to support testing. In these test scenarios these HITL Labs and/or simulators will be asked to send and receive link 16 data link messages per the scenario. Message data will be compared with recorded HITL Lab and/or simulator transmitted and received data to verify message traffic between all systems within the network of LVC systems participating in the test.
