BACKGROUND

The commercial sector is developing many of the key technologies and applications that have the potential for cost-effective adaptation for defence exploitation and use in modelling and simulation (M&S) applications such as defence planning, training, operations and capabilities development. The exploitation of commercial technologies and appropriate use of open standards can provide efficiencies and increased benefits for defence applications. There is a need to identify those technologies having the greatest near term potential and understand the future trends and developments in those technologies that have potential to meet future defence requirements. It is expected that all participants will develop a shared understanding of the issues and opportunities. 

OBJECTIVES

Through demonstration, experimentation, discussion and debate, attendees will acquire knowledge and experience in the possible topic areas. Technical and application briefings and demonstrations on selected commercial technology areas will help the attendees better understand the issues so that they may more properly aid in the development of the strategy for the NATO and the Nations to exploit these technologies. It is expected that all participants will develop a shared understanding of the issues and opportunities. Meeting proceedings will be produced including recommendations for NATO and the Nations.

TOPICS

• the background and affordances of simulations, digital games, and social networking; • the cognitive implications of these technologies; • specific challenges with using these tools for education and training, as well as strategies for overcoming these
