What's inside this edition:
As the global pandemic persists, some fundamental changes to the way the T&S sector does business may have already taken place.
JOINING THE DOTS
As requirements evolve for unified indirect fire support training, a number of nations are introducing extensive new simulation capabilities to replace a patchwork of older technologies.
UP TO SCRATCH
More than 60 years after it first took place, navies are still lining up to participate in a regular 3D battle designed to test their abilities in maximising their ships’ capabilities.
Other features include:
FAST TRACK TO FAST JETS
With many nations suffering from a pilot shortage, air forces are becoming more innovative when it comes to their training, especially for fast jet aircrew.
TRAINING FOR REAL
As the EW threat continues to evolve, NATO’s Joint Electronic Warfare Core Staff organisation is awaiting a new suite of equipment with which to deliver realistic training.
As governments battle with coronavirus, new developments in areas such as range training and instrumentation continue to be fielded, in efforts to improve the realism of targets and the effectiveness of troops being trained on them.
WEATHERING THE STORM
The US is the largest spender on defence in the world and its massive industrial base reflects that fact. Supporting that sector is its T&S industry, which continues to do well despite current global uncertainty.
Instrumented tactical engagement simulation systems, greater freedom of manoeuvre and opportunities for comprehensive training are only some of the benefits that CTCs offer. Shephard examines the latest developments to see how they can improve training.
