The National Training & Simulation Association (NTSA) will focus on the future evolution of military training through technology during its webinar, “Preparing Our Military: Opportunities for the Future,” on May 17.


New, innovative technologies like the metaverse, artificial intelligence and augmented/virtual reality, among others, are not only poised to revolutionize the training that service members will receive one day, but they’re already impacting the present.


Given current trends, these technologies will likely be further refined as demand grows for such tools, due to their contributions that improve training outcomes (such as increased student retention and through-put), as well as more efficient uses of time, money and other resources that lower training costs.


Retired Navy Rear Adm. James Robb, NTSA president, will moderate the discussion. Participants will include senior leaders representing Team Orlando’s military services: Karen Saunders, program executive officer for U.S. Army PEO STRI; Navy Capt. Tim James, NAWCTSD’s executive officer; Marine Col. Marcus Reynolds, program manager for PM TRASYS; and Air Force Col. Matt Ryan, senior materiel leader for the Simulators Division at AFLCMC/WNS.


Panel members will discuss their perspectives on the future of military training and how innovative applications can prepare warfighters to accomplish tomorrow’s missions. Professionals in the modeling, simulation and training community may wish to log on to this webinar to prepare for the Training & Simulation Industry Symposium in June.


NTSA encourages submission of questions for the panel upon registration for this complimentary, virtual event. To register, go to:
