As defense budgets are squeezed and the nature of modern war fighting changes, military projects and procurement are increasingly focusing on the unification of air, land, maritime and special operations forces. As a result, a more holistic approach is being taken in the way training capabilities are delivered.

Countries are embracing the need to develop training tools and simulators that enable the forces to react quickly to any situation. In fact, the value of global military simulation and virtual training programs is expected reach a value of US$12.6 billion by 2024.

Returning for for its sixth year and following on from the major success of previous events, we are proud to present the 6th annual Joint Forces Simulation & Training Conference, 2nd – 3rd February, 2015, London.

As militaries focus on collectively implementing innovative simulation and virtual training systems that are both cost effective and successful in the delivery of training, this conference is a must attend event. Join us and be part of a major networking experience showcasing in depth discussions on joint forces training initiatives, plus a spotlight on current training tools which allow the development of strategic alliances and knowledge transfer, such as computer games and smart devices.

Key topics include:

  • Assessing how NATO Defence College is effectively extending simulative techniques throughout the alliance
  • Implementing computer games as a ‘serious tool’ to keep military trainees motivated during training
  • Meeting the challenge of providing operationally relevant and affordable training
  • An assessment of the Connected Forces initiative
