Simulation and Virtual Training--Military Applications--Technology Penetration and Roadmapping (Technical Insights)
Modern technology has created highly realistic battlefields and weapons training, minimizing the risk of injury during training and dramatically lowering training costs. The latter consideration is particularly valuable as many nations in an economic slump strive to reduce or re-prioritize military budgets. Simulation technologies are developing at a rapid pace, allowing armed forces to train their troops, both recruits and veterans, in new tactics to deal with evolving threats.
