GAMING TO VICTORY: Synthetic Training for Future Combat

While the U.S. military has experienced some networked — cyber, electronic, and information — attacks in battle, it has yet to fully face a near peer competitor, like Russia or China, in this domain. In this editorial, Assistant Professor of Cyber Defense at Salve Regina University, a Fellow in Defense Studies at the American Foreign Policy Council, and a PhD candidate in War Studies at King’s College London, Jennifer McArdle, argues that in the absence of a rich networked-infused battlefield experience, realistic training provides the best source of preparation prior to the crucible of high-end combat. The synthetic training environment — computer-generated forces in a virtual environment — is essential to provide the requisite fidelity to mimic future networked combat.

Enhancing Military Readiness Through Synthetic Training

Enhancing Military Readiness Through Synthetic Training

Today, the live training environment is not conducive to many of the training needs of fifth generation platforms: live training ranges are spatially too restricted, fail to produce realistic threat scenarios, and risk revealing the unique warfighting attributes of platforms. These barriers are pressing military operatives to rethink live training in favor of more realistic missions in virtual environments. In this exclusive article, Jennifer argues why a blend of techniques, known as live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training is increasingly viewed as the future of military training.
