The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education conference will demonstrate how our military trains for irregular warfare--for combat, and just as importantly, for civic operations designed to gain the confidence and cooperation of local foreign populations in Orlando, FL on November 30 to December 3.
Orlando, FL (Vocus) November 18, 2009 -- As the President nears a decision to send additional combat forces to Afghanistan, the world's largest military training exhibition is about to open in Orlando. The event, from November 30 to December 3, will demonstrate how our military trains for irregular warfare--for combat, and just as importantly, for civic operations designed to gain the confidence and cooperation of local foreign populations.
The event, known as the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education conference, will feature hundreds of exhibitors demonstrating the latest training technology, including live and virtual simulations which exactly replicate environments and situations our troops will face when deployed. Interactions with live actors in simulated Afghan villages, with avatars, and in immersive small unit combat, will occur all over the floor. For more details, please visit http://www.iitsec.org/welcome/.
During the event, which attracts corporations, government and military representatives from around the world, US Army Vice Chief of Staff, General Peter Chiarelli will discuss "The Road Ahead for the U.S. Army", addressing the challenges facing the forces after eight years of combat. In addition, veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan will hold a series of special sessions to discuss their training and experiences in combat.
Insight from the Flag Officer Panel will be gained in how they are dealing with the demands and what the needs are for the continuing fight. Participants on the panel include:
Simulation training is rapidly becoming indispensable to medical technology- in research, surgical and other applications. See the latest in robotic surgery, first responder training and virtual emergency rooms and surgeries, including the participation of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (www.SSiH.org).
This event is by far the world's largest assemblage of modeling, simulation and virtual reality technology in one place--Orlando's Orange County Convention Center. See the future of military and civilian training, of research, and of entertainment. Join the tens of thousands attending the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference.
I/ITSEC is produced by the National Training and Simulation Association, headquartered in Arlington, Virginia.
