ITEC 2017: RNLAF outlines simulation plans

16th May 2017 - 12:18 GMT | by Trevor Nash in Rotterdam


According to Col Harold Boekholt, the Royal Netherlands Air Force’s (RNLAF) Head of Policy and Plans, ‘simulation will grow in the future and be driven by new requirements’.

Speaking at the GATE 2 RNLAF Air Mobility Training Centre (AMTC) at Gilze Rijen air base, Boekholt explained that by 2024, the RNLAF will be conducting 50% of its training in the virtual world.

‘Simulation as such is really old school and we are looking at the broader modelling and simulation synthetic environment to improve joint training, connectivity and commonality,’ said Boekholt. ‘We haven’t done that too well yet.’
