Wednesday 12 December 2018, AmsterdamDevelopments in simulation technology have led to an increasing application of simulators in a military capacity. Mainly, military simulation technology can be used as a cost-effective way of training soldiers and engineers. The advancement and sophistication of simulators allow individuals to be trained in highly similar environments to that of advanced military technology without the costs of running the equipment itself. This has many benefits including reducing wear and tear on expensive military equipment as well as increasing the frequency of training military personnel can receive regarding specific equipment such as aircraft. A prevalent example is the new F-35 fifth-generation fighter jet, which uses military simulators for 50% of its training program. Engagement in emerging technology is a significant step for the future development of the military simulation market and evidence that the market for military simulation technology has the potential to grow exponentially in the next decade.
