With instructors and students flying 35% of the US Navy’s total flight hours on 26% of the total service aircraft inventory, the Chief of Naval Air Training organisation plays a critical part in providing flight capabilities for the navy, marine corps and coast guard, plus foreign partners.

Synthetic training environments are key to any modern military’s training methods, with visual databases forming the first step in their creation.

France’s Défense Conseil International is looking to increase its portfolio in the naval training sector. Currently maintaining a strong presence throughout the world, the organisation continues to expand by offering a range of courses, consultancy and services.

The US S&T industry is the largest in the world and shows off its wares at the annual I/ITSEC show in Orlando. The event is the biggest gathering in the industry calendar and provides a good indication of the current mood and the trends that are likely to emerge in the future.

Increasing emphasis is being placed on small unit operations and the role of the individual within them. One way to enhance realism is to capture their motion parameters and then use the data to create virtual entities.

‘Serious games’ have been part of many armed forces’ training curricula for many years, and have become ever more realistic. However, some providers in the sector believe that games engine-based systems now face a challenge.

As one of the world’s leading aerospace and defence contractors, Boeing has been involved in training throughout the whole of its 100-year existence. That emphasis on training is growing, both in terms of provision of equipment and services. Trevor Nash talks to Tim Noonan, Boeing’s VP of training systems and government services, about the company’s approach to this key market.
