For the first time, the largest combat search and rescue exercise in the world will incorporate hefty amounts of simulation.
Wear and tear is a common problem for military equipment, but it also plagues the very simulators trainees learn on. Replacing these trainers can be a lengthy process, evidenced by new Air Launch Cruise Missile simulators that took more than five years to get to students at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The contest is a chance for often lesser-known developers to share creative ideas with the simulation, training, and gaming communities and potentially solve issues that plague the Army’s virtual environments as well.
LONDON — German infantry have started training on the new “future soldier system” that aims to integrate multiple operational and survival functions into an individual soldier’s kit.
WASHINGTON — It took 56 days for the U.S. to flow two divisions’ worth of soldiers into the failed nuclear-armed state of “North Brownland” and as many as 90,000 troops to deal with the country’s nuclear stockpiles, a major U.S. Army war game concluded this winter.

It’s a training dream come true: an island with every kind of terrain you would ever need for practice exercises, tucked neatly away in the North Atlantic. This land mass exists only as a data set, but for simulators in need of realistic terrain or vector data, it’s a place to call home.
WASHINGTON — Even as the U.S. Army’s contingent in Europe continues to shrink — losing 10,000 more soldiers to reach a postwar low of 30,000 by 2015 — service leaders say they actually plan to expand the force’s mission set.
