As we conclude our landmark interview with the Training Development Advisor for the British Army's Royal Artillery, Major Tom Ellis, we explore the difficulties in bringing innovation to the classroom. Technology is often, and should be, driven from the bottom, as Major Ellis points out. 'We can not direct people to be innovative'. This is particularly relevant in an environment where live fire training is costly and often more infrequent than classroom instruction and simulation. From deploying unmanned systems to managing joint fires in support of Afghan operations, the training demands are indeed high. Through creating bespoke simulation programmes for the iPad, artillery instructors are preparing students for a varied threat environment.
