Land Forces Training Summit

  • February 28-March 1, 2023
  • Orlando, FL, United States

With a rapidly changing battlespace, it is integral that Allied forces are prepared for the next generation of warfare. Effective training must align appropriately with mission sets, manage costs and optimize soldiers to their highest potential. This conference will cover live training approaches, interoperability, simulation and synthetic training development, and new technology that allows for the leveraging of data to elevate training performance.

Live training is still a mainstay for nations in building an effective fighting force, and our event will dive into the myriad ways different nations are engaging in bespoke training to tackle unique geographical challenges. A major challenge facing allied nations is the need for the alignment of training systems and coordination among the Joint Force across multiple domains, especially in response to the war in Ukraine and in other conflicts. The value of practicing operational alignment remote from the physical domain has many obvious advantages. However, as forces adopt new weapons systems, enhanced ammunition, longer ranges, and more accuracy, these new systems incur significant costs during training.

While the real thing cannot be fully replaced, augmenting live training with virtual, synthetic and simulated environments can be a major cost saver. Simulated and Live Virtual Constructive environments allow training to be brought to the soldier, rather than bringing the soldier to the training. As the US and other partner nations further develop their virtual training capabilities, it is becoming crucial that leaders and industry manage requirements and engage in effective measurement of training efficacy. Measurement is being made easier by technology, and data banks of information are growing rapidly, which in turn allows for better objective assessment. New measurement tools are increasingly affordable, and the training domain is becoming increasingly scientific in its approach.

7 reasons to attend Land Forces Training:

  • Modernise your land forces training by adopting modern, progressive doctrine that assures your preparedness for multi-domain operations and the future threat context
  • Provide a more realistic, immersive collective training experience to the next generation of warfighters through the leveraging of commercial off-the-shelf synthetics and virtual, mixed and augmented reality technologies
  • Create warfighters with greater situational awareness, tactical mobility and assault support knowledge
  • Optimise training output and demonstrate training effectiveness through the use of advanced big data capture and exploitation technologies
  • Maximise the effectiveness of your training delivery by establishing lasting relationships with military and industry training partners and debriefing joint training exercises to improve interoperability
  • Utilise live and simulated training within a joint, international framework to provide realistic training and produce versatile personnel
  • Start building readiness at the individual to collective levels for large scale ground conflict
