Past event: Military Virtual Training & Simulation Summit

Ensuring Operational Readiness With Modernized Synthetic Training

The 7th Annual Military Virtual Training & Simulation Summit will provide a forum for members of the DoD, Military Services, Federal Government, Industry, Academia, and other relevant stakeholders to discuss the future of modeling, simulation, and virtual training technologies in preparing Warfighters and decision-makers to be trained, ready, and lethal for the future fight. The 2024 VT&S Summit will aim to advance the DoD's ability to deliver virtual environments that provide hyper-realistic training scenarios that enhance warfighter readiness, enable lethality, and enforce battlefield cohesion across the services at all echelons, in all domains.

Topics to be covered at the 2024 Summit:

  • Enhancing the Army's Training and Education Doctrine to Generate a Stronger Fighting Force
  • Leveraging Simulated and Virtual Training Environments to Prepare Sailors for the Future Fight
  • Enabling Marine Corps Training with a Live, Virtual, Constructive Environment
  • Championing Innovations in Modeling & Simulation to Meet USAF Operational Training and Readiness Needs
  • Driving Warfighter Readiness and Training to Exceed Operational Requirements
  • Next-Generation Wargaming to Improve Training and Readiness

Why You Should Attend This Summit:

The 7th Annual Military Virtual Training and Simulation Summit will aim to advance synthetic training environments and modeling and simulation efforts to offer warfighters training solutions that replicate the complexities of the future multi-domain battlefield. Advanced warfighters need advanced training solutions. Further, evolving and emerging technologies are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex, requiring warfighters to continually upgrade their skills and training. This year's Virtual Training and Simulation Summit will explore how the development and integration of synthetic training environments will promote the Warfighter's lethality, readiness, and ability to inter-operate across the Services and joint partners in multi-domain operations.

Attendees will have the unique opportunity to hear from, engage with, and ask questions of senior leaders from across the modeling and simulation community on how the DOD is developing and integrating hyper-realistic simulated training environments. Speakers will examine efforts and benefits of developing a common operating environment and modern simulations that can link forces from around the world into real-time training exercises in a safe, secure, easy-to-use, and cost-effective manner. This year's panel will explore the next generation of wargaming to simulate conflict in 3D and virtual exercises to practice decision-making and gain experience operating in complex scenarios and situations.

Join us at the 2024 Summit to hear from senior leaders from across DoD, military services, academia, and industry on how they are looking to modernize training solutions to maximize the operational capability of the Warfighter. The 2024 Military Virtual Training & Simulation Summit will promote an open and honest dialogue centered around virtual training and simulation as the key to unlocking warfighter readiness, lethality, and ability to confront any enemy in any domain.
