Could anyone that knows please explain how the JTEDS system relates to the MDS system? For example, the article below refers to a "tri-service" designation system (also referred to as MDS), but never mentions JTEDS, despite the fact that it appears to describe the JETDS system. It isn't clear whether MDS is an apt description of JTEDS items at all, or whether they are somehow hierarchically related underneath a a common Tri-Service designation system.

Would it be possible to create an infobox that describes the JETDS system, so that people stop expanding the description inline, as in AN/APG-66? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:18, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

the JETDS office[edit]

consits of 3 people who are required to keep track of all the radio systems in nato, thay have all the radio records dating back to WWII, but refuse to access them largly becouse thay dont have the manpower, even though the records were all computerized. FOIA or no FOIA, these records will remain locked up forever unless there is the proverbial act of congress, this makes gathering historical statistics on radio production in certain time periods virtually impossible.

Not sure it would help, but you might try Data.Gov. It's in its initial stages, but I'm optimistic that this kind of data could be requested. (talk) 15:54, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
