Classically, military maintenance training has been delivered through classroom-based passive educational content followed by on-the-job training, despite the proven advantages that simulation brings. This is not a new topic: a 1981 Institute for Defense Analyses report (https://bit.ly/2PmC1yh) (40 years ago) studied and found clear cost-effectiveness through maintenance simulation versus actual equipment trainers. Today’s learner demographic demands modern learning approaches, and the DoD’s targets for training-hour cost-effectiveness along with ever-increasing facility/equipment access limitations require military training organizations to evolve to address these needs.

This panel will discuss current innovations in immersive military maintenance training and applications of the latest immersive hardware solutions.
