Asia’s largest military training and simulation conference organised by Clarion Events

Address­ing mil­i­tary force readi­ness and warfight­er prepa­ra­tion in Asia
Sin­ga­pore, Sep­tem­ber 5 – With defence bud­gets for sev­er­al Asian coun­tries ris­ing, mod­erni­sa­tion options are open­ing up for more equip­ment and tech­nolo­gies for the mil­i­tary. It is at this point that train­ing and sim­u­la­tion come to the fore, as armies, navies and air forces need to train per­son­nel on the new­ly acquired plat­forms and tech­nolo­gies that are going to be deployed. There has been an increase in the need to improve R&D efforts in the devel­op­ment of sim­u­la­tion tech­nolo­gies for army, air force and navy, in order to pre­pare per­son­nel for even­tu­al com­bat oper­a­tions. Due to its cost effec­tive nature and sim­plic­i­ty, sim­u­la­tion has become more accept­ed cul­tur­al­ly in armed forces through­out Asia.

In less than 4 weeks, on 28–29 Sep­tem­ber, Clar­i­on Events will be launch­ing the Mil­i­tary Train­ing & Sim­u­la­tion Asia con­fer­ence with sup­port from indus­try author­i­ties; Boe­ing, Havok, Pre­sagis, Pro­jec­tion­de­sign, TME Sys­tems and Yusung C&C. The con­fer­ence brings togeth­er the mil­sim com­mu­ni­ty in Asia, fea­tur­ing top region­al mil­i­tary speak­ers, who will be address­ing m&s chal­lenges in weapon sys­tems devel­op­ment, 3D tech­nol­o­gy for sim­u­la­tion, the use of data/models for sim­u­la­tion and many more.

A key high­light of the pro­gramme is with­out a doubt the 20+ pre­sen­ta­tions to be deliv­ered by lead­ers in the field of mil­i­tary sim­u­la­tion and the design of real­is­tic bat­tle­field oper­a­tions from around the world. Mil­i­tary Train­ing & Sim­u­la­tion Asia is the only con­tent-led con­fer­ence in the region that cov­ers dis­cus­sions on tai­lor fit and COTs solu­tions for Asian mil­i­taries. Mil­i­tary Train­ing & Sim­u­la­tion Asia will fur­ther the dis­cus­sion on mil­i­tary train­ing and edu­ca­tion, and help fur­ther the expan­sion of the mil­i­tary sim­u­la­tion com­mu­ni­ty in Asia. With over 20+ speak­ers you are going to meet with mil­i­tary sim­u­la­tion sub­ject mat­ter experts from Malaysia, Brunei, Thai­land, Indone­sia, Philip­pines, Sin­ga­pore, South Korea and many more.

Keynote speak­er Dr. Umut Durak, the chief of mod­el­ing sim­u­la­tion at TUBITAK SAGE, which is Turkey’s Defense Indus­tries Research and Devel­op­ment Insti­tute will be talk­ing about mod­el­ing and sim­u­la­tion con­cept devel­op­ment, util­is­ing it for com­mand and con­trol appli­ca­tions. Addi­tion­al­ly he will be dis­cussing weapon sim­u­la­tions and mis­sion sim­u­la­tor inte­gra­tion for flight, ship, tank and how­itzer sim­u­la­tors.

This will be very valu­able to the con­fer­ence since, his research specif­i­cal­ly cov­ers mod­el­ing and sim­u­la­tion of weapon sys­tems and how that applies to sim­u­la­tion method­olo­gies and infra­struc­tures, and intel­li­gent com­mand and con­trol sys­tems. He has pub­lished more than 10 papers in var­i­ous con­fer­ences and jour­nals. Dr. Umut DURAK par­tic­i­pat­ed in NATO LCG3/SG2 NATO Arma­ments Bal­lis­tic Ker­nel (NABK) Project as Turk­ish Devel­op­ment Team head between 2003 and 2006. Since 2008 he has been a part of NATO ACG/2 NATO Uni­ver­sal Arma­ments Inter­face (NUAI) Spe­cial­ist Team and lead­ing NIAG Study Group 156 on NUAI Mis­sion Plan­ning Inter­face Stan­dard­i­s­a­tion.

“The pri­ma­ry objec­tive for Mil­i­tary Train­ing & Sim­u­la­tion Asia is to pro­vide a grow­ing plat­form for the evolv­ing train­ing and sim­u­la­tion com­mu­ni­ty in Asia. Our team believes that only by work­ing close­ly with our mar­ket, can we offer an annu­al con­fer­ence that will meet the key needs of all stake­hold­ers.” said Amo Mostofi, Gen­er­al Man­ag­er Asia for Defence & Secu­ri­ty, Clar­i­on Events. For its inau­gur­al year, Mil­i­tary Train­ing & Sim­u­la­tion Asia looks at key Asian mil­i­taries and their require­ments. This includes how sim­u­la­tion and train­ing can help dri­ve the mod­erni­sa­tion by focus­ing on ele­ments such as pre deploy­ment train­ing, wargam­ing and data mod­el­ing to sim­u­late com­bat sit­u­a­tions and pre­pare ser­vice per­son­nel.

Clar­i­on Events spe­cialise in high-lev­el defence and secu­ri­ty events which are cre­at­ed with the input of a pan­el of senior lev­el gov­ern­ment, mil­i­tary and indus­try advi­sors. Exten­sive research and dia­logue with these con­tacts ensure our events reflect the most impor­tant issues fac­ing you and the wider defence and secu­ri­ty com­mu­ni­ty today. By mak­ing it our pri­ma­ry mis­sion to work close­ly with the Asian defence com­mu­ni­ty, includ­ing all senior stake­hold­ers and lead­ers we are able to cre­ate the most effec­tive pro­grammes for the Asian mar­ket. Our events pro­vide the ide­al venue for these high lev­el del­e­gates to meet, share ideas, dis­cuss indus­try devel­op­ments, con­duct busi­ness, devel­op part­ner­ships and net­work for future growth.
