MSE Symbology and Equipment Nomenclature

This appendix gives the current symbology and equipment nomenclature for MSE including the ISYSCON symbols.

MSE SYMBOLOGY

  Table A-1 contains symbols that represent joint symbology for tactical communications. They are derived from the Global Team Labeling (GTEAM) data file of the GDB. The left-hand column of the table shows the symbol and the right-hand column lists the equipment nomenclature associated with the symbol. The standard team name is identified above the symbol. The team label is identified below the symbol and is either a four or a five character field. The symbol is associated with the team type in the GTEAM data file.
