  • Hello,
    My name is Alwi. I am a student and at the moment. I am looking for information for a project I am working on.
    I need some information and numbers about the flight simulator market. Specifically the Market Share for pc-based simulators.
    Anything that will help me with writing the Market Overview and Market Needs is highly appreciated.

    Kind Regards,
    Alwi Mohamed Suleiman
    Delay is the enemy of progress.

Training and Simulation and Beyond

  1. 1. Andy Fawkes IQPC - Armoured Vehicles Africa – London UK 4 July 2013 Training and Simulation and Beyond
  2. 2. What is this about? • The impact of Digital Technologies on: –Preparing your People –Ability of the Threat to Prepare
  3. 3. My Background Source - UK MoD; NATO
  4. 4. Overview • Military Training and Education • Training and Education Technology • Simulation • Beyond Simulation • A Buyer’s Guide
  5. 5. Military Training and Education
  6. 6. Military Training and Education (UK) • Scale - 257,160 Military/Civilian (2011) • Depth – eg. Fighter Pilot, Reactor Operator • Breadth – Apache Pilot through to Cook • Flexibility – Current Operations
  7. 7. Global Defence Training and Simulation Market • Exceeds US$6.6 billion per year. • Although defence budgets are being cut, the simulation and training market is stable. Source:- South African National Defence Force (SANDF) (2013)
  8. 8. Cost of Training and Education in Defence • Manpower • Platforms and Equipment • Fuel and Maintenance • Training Estate and Establishments • Training Systems and Simulators • Approximately 20% of Defence Budget
  9. 9. Armoured Vehicle Training and Education • Individual • Crew • Collective • Joint • Combined • Support and Maintenance • OA, Experimentation and Acquisition
  10. 10. Military Capability Defence Lines of Development (UK) • Training • Equipment • Personnel • Information • Doctrine and Concepts • Organisation • Infrastructure • Logistics Source:- UK MoD Acquisition Operating Framework - version 3.2.3 – July 2013
  11. 11. Importance of Military Training and Education • The Military understands that training and education is fundamental to their endeavour • People are assessed by how well they do in Training • Career progression depends on training and education • Much of military life is spent training and exercising • Lessons learnt are fed back

  18. 18. Source: Wikipedia; Pictures: Lockheed Martin, Royal Navy, CAE, PA What is Simulation? Typically a military training simulation is interactive, with a “human in the loop” eg. a flight simulator or driving simulator
  19. 19. What is Simulation?
  20. 20. Live Simulation A simulation involving real people operating real systems. Virtual Simulation A simulation involving real people operating simulated systems. Constructive Simulation Models and simulations that involve simulated people operating simulated systems. Real people stimulate such simulations, but are not involved in determining the outcomes. Live Virtual Constructive Simulation Source:- DoD M&S Glossary 5000.59-M
  21. 21. Why Use Simulation? Reduce Costs Improve Training Reduce Environmental Impact Safety Reduce Time to Train
  22. 22. Benefits of Simulation • A Canadian Study looked at the influence VBS had on their Armour School's Troop Warrant Officer’s course. • A blended approach (Serial 0702) cost about 33% less through reductions in fuel etc and drove the pass rate up from 72% to 100% compared to purely live training. • Only one day of VBS took the pass rate to 30%. • The new blended live/simulation mix reduced the cost to train (and qualify) each trainee by about a half.

  23. 23. Cost of Training? Estate People Platforms Fuel Weapons Estate People Simulation Fuel Live Simulation
  24. 24. Live-Synthetic Balance !   !! # * ?  ?
  25. 25. The Live Synthetic Balance • Language – What does the word “Synthetic” Convey? • Culture - “Live will never be replaced” • Assessing Training Cost Effectiveness is Difficult • The simulation needs to be in place first • Technology is Changing and so do Operations • How often do we change the Way we Manage?

  27. 27. What is Driving the Advances in Simulation? • Computing/Internet/Multimedia/Games • The UK has an internet economy 8.3% of GDP (2012) (defence 2.5%) Source:- Wikipedia
  28. 28. Simulation for Operations: More than just training? • Exploiting the simulation facility • Collating, filtering, displaying the information • Through-mission simulation
