Asia Pacific: Technologies to Help Boost Training Readiness

Group editor Marty Kauchak reviews S&T trends and developments in Asia Pacific.

There are rare moments in the defense training and simulation community when programs are reconfiguring themselves beneath our feet. Such is the case in the Asia Pacific region.

And while innovation and new programs are not occurring in this region in startlingly fast bursts, there is sustained, quickening pace of innovation across APAC and the S&T sector – helping to elevate training readiness programs to new levels.

Requirements-Driven Innovations

S&T advancements in this defense market are occurring from the component and system levels, up through complex training events, to match rapidly maturing end user requirements.
