Discover how futuristic military training is becoming a reality at the Joint Simulation & Training Africa Expo on 25-28 June 2012. Science fiction has long speculated on what military training would be like in the future: from the Moral Philosophy and live simulations in Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers to the brain transplants and genetic engineering in John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War to, most famous of all, the multiple and complex simulations in Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. While a great number of the training methods in these novels remain science fiction, a surprisingly large proportion is now science fact. Enter the world of simulations for military training.
At Joint Simulation & Training Africa 2012 visitors 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 be on the challenges, recent developments and changing needs - with simulation as the key enabler.
