Goodfellow Air Force Base 316th Training Squadron

316th Training Squadron 



Goodfellow Air Force Base is a non-flying base located in San Angelo, TX. They provide cryptologic and intelligence training for the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Navy, and Marine Corps. It is home to the 17th Training Wing and part of the Air Education & Training Command (AETC).


The 316th Training Squadron Information Technology (IT) Director at Goodfellow AFB was tasked with the responsibility of equipping U.S. Marine classified computer classrooms with a classroom management system. He shared these classroom requirements with us:  “Instructor needed the capability to monitor 16 student dual screen displays from their desk position”. This solution needed to allow the instructor to monitor audio/video student activity, communicate with each student individually or as a group, push material to all students, and blank screens when training required a different focus.

The IT Director had tried software solutions but found that they always ran into connectivity issues due to network security settings. He found that the LINK hardware based solution offers more compatibility to the instructor.  His squadron is very familiar with LINK System technology since they have been using these products in their classrooms for over ten years.


Several classified classrooms on Goodfellow are equipped with the Composite LINK System. These classrooms are designed to use dual screens at all instructor and student workstations. Our LINK System solution is dual screen compatible and allows the instructors to easily access both student monitors, keyboard, mouse, and headset using the ACS touch screen interface. Their instructors find the LINK System to be very intuitive and user-friendly (see the below quote from their IT Director).

“We have found the LINK System set ups are very beneficial to our instructors. They no longer have to constantly walk around the classroom to look over student shoulders to see how they are progressing. Instructors can interact with students having issues and blank all the screens when they want their attention”.  He goes on to say “The most valuable feature is the instructor’s ability to monitor dual screen audio/video. ACS has been very receptive to our requests and designed special capabilities for us when needed.”

Applied Computer Systems, Inc. does offer free onsite demonstrations of the LINK System. The LINK System is used in computer classrooms to effectively enhance the teaching and learning process. It improves retention rates and keeps students on task. It is a cost-effective computer classroom management system built to last for many years.
