CAE Showcases New Fixed-Base Military Helicopter Training Platform

Gene Colabatistto, the president of the defense and security group at CAE, offers his commentary on the newly revealed helicopter simulation platform unveiled by CAE at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow in the U.K. 
CAE plans to offer the platform to military customers for mission and flight training.

Transforming ISR Capabilities Through AI, Machine Learning, and Big Data

Dr. Thomas Killion, Chief Scientist, NATO, provides insight on incorporating Artificial Intelligence into defense strategies. Such work has already begun to transform NATO's ISR capabilities with regards to assimilation and data processing in efforts to effectively identify targets. What's next is yet to be seen.

Q&A: Changing the Training Paradigm to Maximize Readiness

Colonel Bradley M. Crites Commander Air Force Agency for Modeling and Simulation discusses what is next for the agency.

Enhancing Military Readiness Through Synthetic Training

Today, the live training environment is not conducive to many of the training needs of fifth generation platforms: live training ranges are spatially too restricted, fail to produce realistic threat scenarios, and risk revealing the unique warfighting attributes of platforms. These barriers are pressing military operatives to rethink live training in favor of more realistic missions in virtual environments. In this exclusive article, Jennifer argues why a blend of techniques, known as live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training is increasingly viewed as the future of military training.

The "Disruptive World" and the Integrated Force: Readiness through LVC

Jennifer McArdle's presentation from the 2018 Royal Australian Air Force's (RAAF) Air Power Conference. McArdle emphasizes the importance of LVC training and explains why training must be "increasingly pushed into the virtual and constructive environment."

Virtual reality for defence less about ‘reality’ than results.

The need for realistic, high-end graphics are less important than having effective training that yields significant operational outcomes. 

Cubic signs $7.1m deal to provide simulation services to Australian Navy
