Huge Exhibition to Demonstrate Training for Irregular Warfare
Date:11/18/2009

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:

 
  • General Stephen R. Lorenz, USAF Commander, Air Education and Training Command
  • Dr. Samuel D. Kleinman Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Readiness)
  • Major General Mark Graham, USAm G3 FORSCOM
  • Rear Admiral Joseph F. Kilkenny, USN Commander, Naval Education and Training Command
  • Major General Stephen R. Layfield, USA Director, Joint Warfighting Center, U.S. Joint Forces Command
  • Rear Admiral Timothy S. Sullivan, USCG Commander, Force Readiness Command
  • Major General (sel) Melvin G. Spiese, USMC Commanding General, Training and Education Command

Training to operate remote vehicles and sensors is rapidly becoming a vital area. At I/ITSEC, robotic equipment and unmanned areal vehicle training technology will be much in evidence. Also on the floor will be dozens of developers of high-resolution graphics for films, including Hollywood hits, PC-based games, serious games, and of course simulators. Please visit http://exhibits.iitsec.org for a complete exhibitor listing.

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.
