Simulation, VR/AR, synthetic environments, human, robotic and AI interactions are rapidly converging in the defence domain. With the technology and its use progressing at an exponential rate, errors could be made by overriding the human considerations and not selecting the best modality to achieve the desired training or mission outcome.

Over two days at Land Forces, this essential program of local and international guest speaker presentations, demonstrations and discussions will put a spotlight on:

  • The appropriateness of the simulation modalities from reality based to virtual in relation to objectives;
  • The risk and impact of these modalities and interactions on the human; and
  • The learning science behind simulation and immersive training.

Hosted by the Asia Pacific Simulation Alliance, this Simulation Conference has been convened for key decision-makers from throughout the region attending LAND FORCES 2018, including government representatives, defence officials, military procurement managers and senior army officers.

Simulation and modelling technical demonstrations will be held by industry and academia to showcase capability within the LAND FORCES 2018 exhibition.

Free of charge to attend, the Simulation Conference is open to accredited registered professional visitors to LAND FORCES 2018.
