Why You Should Attend This Summit:

This educational Summit will bring together senior DoD officials, military leaders, academia, and solution providers to explore emerging concepts and capabilities in Virtual Training and Simulation technologies. Emerging simulation technology will improve training and prepare the warfighter for current and future challenges. DSI’s 2022 Military VT&S Summit will discuss the pressing need to develop and mature modelling and simulation capabilities across the DoD. As the nation faces itself confronting potential threats from peer nations across multiple domains and operating environments leaders throughout the military need effective methods to ensure their units are ready and capable of meeting these challenges. The continued development of virtual training capabilities will allow America’s Warfighters to be prepared and ready for to confront any enemy that confronts them. This Summit will feature senior level discussions that emphasize the critical need for the rapid acquisition and development of VT&S capabilities across all services. This program will allow for open and honest dialogue to solve the nation’s most difficult technical and strategic challenges. __________________________________________________________________________________

Operating Guidance for Government Attendees:

DSI’s Summit directly supports DoD and Government priorities by providing a conduit for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department's mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time. DSI’s Summit will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission. The Summit is open and complimentary to all DoD and Federal Government employees and is considered an educational and training forum. ___________________________________________________________________________________
