Future trends

Application of Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) training technology is a future trend that will provide users with a robust, intensive training environment that can fully integrate live participants from disparate worldwide locations – including test ranges – with the highest-fidelity virtual scenarios and constructive elements. With it, mission training and rehearsal experiences are as close to real as they can get.  The eBook details some of the latest developments in LVC training.

Other trends covered in the eBook include:

· Increasing use of extremely complex immersive environments

· Next generation Air Traffic Management dramatically changing human factors across aviation

· Declining military budgets driving the need for more simulated training

· Growing adoption of gaming technology

· Increasing demand for mobile tablet and smart phone training

· Growth in emerging international markets driving industry collaboration
