  • Pursuing MILTECH and exploiting the potential of simulation for decision support
  • Developing interoperable, accessible and deployable synthetic environment to support decision making at all levels of warfare
  • Enhancing Ingestion of real time intelligence to provide course of action analysis faster than real time in both the planning and execution of operations
  • Allowing commanders to visualise, simulate and interact with highly complex problems prior to informing agile real-world decision making
  • Informing agile real-world decision making and hosting test and evaluation; war gaming; and mission rehearsal activity

Brigadier Frazer Michael Lawrence OBE QCVS

Director, Joint Warfare
UK JFC

  • Modeling training in the context of future multi-domain operations. How can we facilitate experimentation to augment the value of synthetic training?
  • How can we leverage technologies of the future to deliver next-generation training? What role will VR and AR have in wargaming?
  • How can we improve the linkage of synthetic mission training systems and simulator networks to enable multi-entry and multi-location training exercises?
  • How can we enhance delivery of high-fidelity simulations and provide the Warfighter the opportunity to exercise all Warfighting Functions across the full Operational Environment?
