Naval Training and Simulation 2016 Conference

Naval Training and Simulation 2016 (NT&S 2016) is unique in its focus on naval training and simulation: a field of great importance and one subject to significant change and development over the coming years. At a time when manpower in Western navies is shrinking and training budgets are frequently constrained, the question of how best to train your personnel is of paramount importance.

  • Learn how to strike the right balance between synthetic and practical training in order to achieve maximum effectiveness.
  • Explore how to improve the fidelity of training using the latest technological developments.
  • Examine how using synthetic training can reduce manpower and cost burden.
  • Explore the benefits of prioritising training early in the acquisition process in order to improve the capability of future asset.
  • Improving international training and interoperability in order to improve operational effectiveness with allies/neighbours.
  • How the use of third-party training can potentially increase the overall effectiveness of training.


6 Reasons to attend Naval Traning & Simulation

  1. Generate new sales leads
    maximum cost efficiency and to ensure the best possible training results
  2. Launch new products or services
    Learn how to use the latest technological developments to improve synthetic and practical training fidelity, and reduce cost and manpower burden
  3. Demonstrate thought leadership
    Explore the benefits of networked training, utilising synthetic and practical assets simultaneously to improve overall training results
  4. Building customer loyalty
    Learn how e-learning and desktop simulators can allow you to conduct valuable training whilst at sea, at minimal financial cost and minimal equipment/space burden on board
  5. Positioning your company brand
    Meet and network with the military and industry personnel driving change and development in naval training, both doctrinally and technologically, in order to ensure your own training stays up to date and effective
  6. Building relations with the media
    Explore how best to conduct international training both synthetically and practically, in order to improve international interoperability. Also explore benefits of sharing training facilities internationally, thereby reducing cost burden on individual nations and combining practical and intellectual resource
