Modern Military Training recently spoke with training technology experts from Rockwell Collins, Raytheon, CAE, CSRA and several other companies to find out what they see as the big trends in simulation training and live virtual constructive (LVC) training for 2017.
From virtual reality headgear and combining multiple simulation systems to pushing toward more compact training technology and combining solutions to create greater training scenarios, the experts had much to say about how 2017 will be a year of innovation and measurement for the industry.
Nick Gibbs of Rockwell Collins, sees head worn display technology continuing to sweep training and other industries in 2017. He also sees he sees a focus on cognitive measurement and learning effectiveness with the goal of improving training methodologies.
We also spoke with Rob Reyenga of Raytheon who said that to create the incredibly complex environments needed to train today’s warriors, we will see more of the branches combine their LVC and simulation training to create increasing complex training environments for soldiers.
CAE’s Gene Colabatistto predicts that there will be a need and a requirement to do more simulation-based training in 2017, because it is more effective, it lowers costs and offers more complexity to better prepare the warfighter. As he said, advanced aircraft may not be the “best classroom” when you can train for it in a simulator or on an advanced training system.
