Defense Strategies Institute is proud to announce the 5th Annual Military Virtual Training and Simulation Summit, taking place February 23-24, 2022 in Orlando, Florida. This year’s Summit will focus on the efforts to leverage M&S technologies across the Military in order to increase warfighter readiness and help train for future multi-domain operations, highlighting this year’s theme “Enhancing Operational Readiness of the Nation’s Warfighters.”.

As the nation faces itself confronting potential threats from peer nations across multiple domains and operating environments leaders throughout the military need effective methods to ensure their units are ready and capable of meeting these challenges. Discussions at this senior level forum will focus on the pressing need to develop and mature modelling and simulation capabilities across the DoD to allow America’s Warfighters to be prepared and ready for to confront any enemy that confronts them.

The 2022 Military Virtual Training and Simulation Summit will feature senior-level speakers including:
– Karen Saunder, SES, Senior Official Performing the Duties of the ASA(ALT) & AAE
– BG William Glaser, USA, Director, Synthetic Training Environment CFT
– Col John Kurian, USAF, Senior Materiel Leader, Simulators Division, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center
