APSA has been invited by the Aerospace Maritime Defence and Security Foundation of Australia to convene a mini simulation conference at Land Forces 2020 on 2 June from 1230-1630 in Brisbane.
LAND FORCES 2021 is a powerful forum for key decision-makers from throughout the region, enabling government representatives, defence officials, military procurement managers and senior army officers to network with defence materiel manufacturers, equipment suppliers and service providers.
NEW DIMENSIONS IN TRAINING
With the rapid uptake of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence and other wearables, is it time to redefine the approach to simulation training? This session will bring together industry cases, researchers and thought leaders to showcase and discuss some of the new developments and their potential impact on training.
WEDNESDAY 2 JUNE 2021 - 1230 - 1630
Meeting Room M4, Mezzanine Level, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC)
BRISBANE, QLD, AUSTRALIA
Army’s Future Ready Training System
Dealing with Army’s transformation to meet future training and learning needs.
Presenter: COL Stuart Cree, Director Training Systems, HQ Forces Command
Simulation Enabled Training Design
While simulation is a technology based capability, it remains an inherently human endeavour. The challenge for the modern day trainer is how to incorporate simulation appropriately, Simulation enabled Training Design considers the purpose of simulation, the methods available, key learning outcomes and the challenges of integrating this type of technology.
Presenter: Jason Mildon, Director, Meikai
Cost Effective Large Scale Training
Army’s Future Ready Training System requires economical and scalable methods of achieving individual and collective training, learning outcomes and assessments delivering robust and deployable force generation outcomes. Technology planning must be inherent in this process, and not a last minute “bolt on” comprising of various disparate and ad hoc components. Learn how VR can be part of this solution.
Presenter: Gareth Collier, Vice President – Strategy, SimCentric Technologies
Supporting operators/maintainers using augmented and mixed reality
Since the 1980s we have used worker enablement/performance support (Think: context sensitive help) in IT and ERP systems. Augmented and mixed reality systems are creating a ‘rethink’ in training for operators and maintainers of platforms. Let’s look at the current and future state of ‘just-enough, just-in-time, at the moment of need’ support using AR/MR.
Presenter: Michael Hardy, Director, Innovation & Technology, KBR, Government Solutions APAC
The Technology Revolutionising Welder Training in the Defence Industry
Welding is a critical component in manufacturing and maintaining land vehicles for the defence industry. Forward-thinking manufacturers and training institutions are already using the latest technology to ensure welders have the skills they need to succeed, with advanced welder trainer technology being used more and more as a way of streamlining the training, assessing and hiring process for welders. This presentation will explore how cutting-edge military vehicle manufacturers are already reducing welder training costs and shoring up workforce capability to meet demand by leveraging advanced training technology for welders.
Presenter: Geoff Crittenden, Chief Executive Officer, Weld Australia
Ethical AI for Defence
The presentation will discuss how to create scenarios and simulations to test and manage ethical and legal risks in Defence contexts of use of robotics, autonomous systems and artificial intelligence in accordance with ‘A Method for Ethical AI in Defence’ DSTG report framework of Responsibility Governance Trust Law & Traceability.
Presenter: Dr Kate Devitt, Chief Scientist, Trusted Autonomous Systems
Formal registration will include Mini Simulation Conference admission and does not any catering.
