How can Joint Simulation and Training help soldiers fight?
July 23, 2010Posted by on
One of the most important challenges facing the military is creating realistic joint training for mission success in the asymmetric combat environment. We all know that soldiers need to train like they will fight so that when the time comes, they’ll fight like they’ve trained, devoid of hesitation.
At the Joint Simulation and Training 2010 conference hosted in London on 27th – 28th September, you will hear about training and simulation technologies, as well as live training. 16 keynote speakers from major defence, military and high-tech industry stakeholders have been carefully chosen to provide attendees with up-to-date insights into:
• International assignments of joint forces operations, Live-Virtual-Constructive integration and interoperability in training simulations.
• Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) as the weapon of choice in asymmetric warfare waged against joint forces over recent years. IEDs are becoming ever more sophisticated and in many cases fatally effective. In reaction, joint forces have developed enhanced Counter-IED (C-IED) training capabilities.
• Increased training effectiveness for less risk, time and cost through leveraging real benefit from human factors, in particular the need to collaborate and share data, models and practice.
• An increased emphasis on integrating live training with advanced technologies, presenting far greater scope for soldiers to be prepared for the unexpected.
Our expert panel of speakers include:
• Major General Dana Pittard, Deputy Chief of Staff, G-3/5/7, US Army Training and Doctrine Command • Colonel Dennis Thompson, US Marine Corps (Retired) Marine Air Ground Task Force, Training Simulations Division, Marine Corps Training and Education Command
• Lieutenant Colonel Daniel ‘Doc’ Pepper, Commander, 705 CTS/CC, USAF ACC • A J Fawkes, Deputy Head of Capability, JTES (Simulation) Cap (Joint Training Evaluation Simulation) UK MoD
• Dr David Swift, Principle Psychologist, Directorate of Training (Army), UK MoD For a full list of speakers, videos, podcasts and the meeting agenda visit www.jointsimulationandtraining.com.
There is also a Post Conference Workshop: “Evaluating the Market Trends & Requirements for Military Simulation and Training Products”
Wednesday 29th September 10.00-13.00
Workshop Leader: Hawk ISM
By attending this workshop, delegates will be able to: – Understand the primary issues in the simulation and training market for the military – Assess the best strategies for setting and meeting requirements in simulation and training that makes use of market trend and requirements knowledge – Streamline and develop new simulation training best practice that are both cost effective and provide rigour and realism in training frontline warfighters.
