Joint Simulation & Training Africa 2012

It is common wisdom that â€œsoldiers must train like they will fightâ€. The more realistic the training, the more likely soldiers are to fight like they trained, that is, effectively and without of hesitation. The biggest problem with providing operationally realistic training is of course cost: major field exercises can be prohibitively expensive. This trade-off between realism and cost, however, has been substantially altered by the rise of ICT technologies: cutting-edge military simulations provide impressive realism and immersion at the fraction of the cost of field exercises.
At Joint Simulation and Training Africa 2012 you will hear about training and simulation technologies, as well as live training, from major defence, military and high-tech industry stakeholders from across Africa and the world. The focus will squarely be on training â€“ the challenges, recent developments, changing needs - with simulation as the key enabler.
