Enhanced Military Training with Next-Generation Synthetic Training Technologies by BITES

Issue 40 - February 2013

"A convergence of new technologies and advanced learning techniques will help the military meet its growing training requirements, despite budget constraints"

Military training is poised for a transformational shift that will significantly improve training effectiveness while reducing its costs. This shift is driven by a combination of new technologies and emerging trends in learning, including the widespread use of social media, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), cloud computing, data analytics, and ever increasing improvements in gaming and simulation technologies. These converging forces will enable greater use of integrated solutions in training exercises, greater flexibility in adapting systems to new threats and requirements, and an increased ability to tailor training programs to the specific needs of military personnel. Driven by exponential growth in computer processing power, computer based simulation is changing the way militaries plan and train like never before.
