Military Training & Simulation News (MTSN) was first published in monthly newsletter format in 1995, and in 1999 it became a bi-monthly magazine.
In 2015, MTSN became part of the Shephard Media portfolio. With a readership of over 40,000, MTSN is requested, read and respected in over 70 countries by professional military, government, academic and industry personnel.
With a team of global correspondents, the magazine brings the reader high-quality analysis, news and in-depth features. MTSN is the only magazine dedicated to military training and simulation with a publishing frequency of six issues per year.

Bringing increasingly large numbers of warships'crew members together for sophisticated computerised exercises is a growing trend, but a recent incident in the Middle East shows that one of the most basic rules of seamanship training is disregarded at your peril.
Live training may be considered expensive by some, but it forms the pinnacle of collective training and is therefore vital in terms of testing operational readiness. Such training is the closest replicator of combat operations, so it comes as no surprise to hear that armies continue to invest in this domain.
An air-to-air refuelling capacity adds significant reach and operational capability to a nation's power projection aspirations. In Australia, that reach is provided by 33 Squadron, for whom there is no let-up in training tempo at RAAF Base Amberley in Queensland.
The USAF's T-X competition has drawn much attention over the past few years. As the deadline to submit formal responses gets closer, two teams have withdrawn and one declared, albeit with the same aircraft as one of the earlier bids, with three contenders left in the race.
The range of projection systems now on offer to support the virtual training domain is massive. Over recent months, a new breed of 4k-resolution devices have appeared on the market to raise the fidelity bar even higher. These technologies mean that true virtual realism is rapidly approaching.
IEDs are increasingly posing a significant threat to the safety of troops, so devising effective ways to train soldiers in matters of awareness and safety is crucial.
Created in 2003, the European Training and Simulation Association provides an environment for users and suppliers to exchange opportunities, ideas, information and strategies on training, simulation technology and methodologies. Trevor Nash talks to Graham McIntyre, chairman and CEO, about the organisation and its plans for the future.
