2024 Conference Theme

 IT²EC 2024 - defence training and technology event

Enabling operational advantage through training and simulation

Defence training technology is rapidly evolving with advancements in AI, XR, big data analytics and the Internet of Things paving the way for more effective and efficient training. All this is underpinned by an increasing defence policy requirement for force elements to be persistently deployed in distant theatres.

How can defence best leverage these technologies to optimise our collective operational advantage? Equally importantly, how might they best be exploited to satisfy the complex skill demands of operators, maintainers and commanders? Taking a customer-centric view, IT²EC 2024 will explore the technologies shaping the future military landscape with the conference theme, 'Enabling operational advantage through training and simulation'

“IT²EC 2023 provided an excellent forum to validate solutions required within the defence industry.  It was stimulating to view state-of-the-art technology whilst learning and understanding the future vision for so many companies.  I thoroughly enjoyed the event and would certainly recommend this to anyone in the industry. I look forward to the 2024 edition in London next year”.
