Receive Briefings from USMC, USAF, and U.S. Army Leaders, at Virtual Training and Simulation Summit

Arlington, VA, September 13, 2017 --( On October 31 & November 1, personnel from USMC, USAF, Federal Agencies, Academia, and Industry will convene in Arlington, VA, for two days of “off-the-record” briefings and informal discussions at Defense Strategies Institute’s “town hall” Military Virtual Training and Simulation Summit. Discussions will focus on this year’s central theme of “Ensuring a Mission Ready Force through Virtual Training and Simulation."

As the US Governments training budget declines, it is critical for leaders in the Department of Defense to maintain a high level of readiness. A primary solution to this challenge is using virtual training and simulation for warfighter training in place of “live” training whenever possible. Virtual reality training is already being adopted by militaries globally including all the three branches; Army, Air Force, and Navy.

This Summit will focus on the direction of virtual training and simulation for the Department of Defense. As we move forward with technology, virtual reality and augmented reality more closely reflect real life situations.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of their summits content and focus areas, and they will assemble the most respected minds in the government, military, academic, and scientific communities. The non-partisan approach allows DSI to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.

Attendees Will Experience Perspectives from Senior Level Speakers, Including:

- Maj Gen Burke “Ed” Wilson, USAF, Deputy Principal Cyber Advisor to the Secretary of Defense, Senior Military Advisor for Cyber, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, OSD

- Maj Gen Scott Smith, USAF, Director of Training and Readiness, Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations, HQAF

- Dr. Kevin Geiss, SES, Director, Airman Systems Directorate, 711th Human Performance Wing, Air Force Research Lab

- Col William Yates, USMC Program Manager, PM Trasys, Marine Corps Systems Command

- COL Joseph Nolan, USA, Deputy Director US Army Modeling and Simulation Office

- Col Philip Carpenter, USAF, Chief, Simulators Division, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center

Sessions Will Revolve Around the Following Key Topics:

-Providing simulation, training, and instrumentation capabilities to support decisive action operations

-Leading coordination of Army M&S enterprise and cross-community areas including, joint, intergovernmental, interagency, and multinational environments

-Understanding and considering the limitations of human factors in creating effective simulator training systems

-Increasing weapons system complexity and changing threat environment requiring M&S and LVC solutions to evolve in times of budget constraint

-Providing both physical and simulated environments designed to place test articles in a realistic yet simulated combat environment

-Developing and integrating virtual, constructive and gaming replications of the operational environment
