Thanks to the development of simulated or synthetic training capabilities, the last decade has brought about significant changes in the way personnel are trained. Barriers to the effectiveness, use and integration of these technologies still exist and – although the military training establishment have been restricted to a degree in their speed to leverage available technologies – the landscape is now changing.
An increasing number of game-changing solutions are coming from start-up companies and cross-sector technology transfer, providing fresh competition to the well-established primes in training and simulation. With smaller budgets to showcase their solutions, new market entrants rely on the cutting-edge tech to speak for itself.
