What's inside this edition:
Much has been said lately about disruptive training technologies, but do they really exist, and if yes, what impact are they having on the defence sector?
New, high-resolution projectors and head-mounted displays are leading to a step change in simulator visual systems. Many believe that the AR headset and small-footprint, high-brightness and high-resolution dome will gradually dominate over the next few years.
Other features include:
NATO has a membership of 30 independent states, nearly all of whom are part of its integrated military structure, and a comprehensive operational C2 hierarchy consisting of several multinational HQs. Shephard looks at how these HQs, with staff from different nations, train for operations and how NATO’s Joint Warfare Centre is central to this effort.
