Joint Forces Simulation & Training Conference

3 February, 2014 - 4 February, 2014, London, United Kingdom

Related Events

The concept of Joint warfare is becoming increasingly prevalent in the current operational environment, as forces move towards a contingency role. With the increasingly unpredictable nature of modern conflict, warfare is no longer 'conventional' and with this comes a growing requirement for a dynamic and adaptable force, utilising strengths from each arm of the services. However, as budgets become increasingly limited there is a requirement for alternative training solutions, through simulation, international cooperation and collective training, to maintain high operational readiness, without sacrificing efficacy.

Our 5th annual Joint Forces Simulation & Training conference features an international panel of senior military speakers who will give you the opportunity to experience first-hand the processes involved in supporting and maintaining Joint Force capability from the commanders driving the sector. Hear case studies from leading NATO nations and gain an insight into the current state of Joint force operations, training and resources. Additionally, hear from current operators in sessions dedicated to land, sea and air components; featuring presentations on synthetic simulation, multinational training, live excercises as well as infantry, artillery and submarine training systems!

Key reasons to attend:

  • New high-level speaker line-up and updated conference agenda to provide focused sessions on Land, Sea, Air & Simulation
  • Hear cutting edge presentations from the key decision makers driving training and simulation
  • Communicate directly with senior military operators and ideas-share with the personnel currently defining the requirements of Joint Force capability
  • Hear international case studies from leading NATO nations and gain an insight into the current state of Joint force operations, training and resources
  • Learn about the latest developments available in synthetic training; for pilots, trainers, submarine personnel and artillery
  • Analyse the advantages of multinational training and build relationships with allied counterparts
  • The event will offer unrivalled networking opportunities with leading defence organisations and senior international military personnel, giving you the chance to communicate directly with the key decision makers driving the Joint Forces concept
