MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the U.S. remains deployed overseas, increased emphasis is placed on home station training. Maintaining readiness in the absence of active overseas deployment and consequent combat experience is paramount as U.S. forces continue to face the widest spectrum of threats in history. Therefore, employing the full potential of concepts and technologies embedded in simulations for training is critical in maintaining force readiness under conditions of reduced training outlays and home station training restrictions. 

"Despite recent fiscal constraint and budgetary uncertainly, training and simulation is one of the most dynamic and rapidly evolving markets witnessing dramatic growth over the past decade and continues as a large growth sector in  the global Aerospace and Defense industry," said Frost & Sullivan Aerospace and Defense Senior Industry Analyst Michael Blades. "Training and simulation is vital to education and military readiness, especially in light of reduced budgets. Those even remotely invested in the market need crucial insight to insure they acquire and incorporate the necessary technologies into their operational framework that are essential for success."

To evaluate the state of the industry, Blades participates in Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2013 (www.iitsec.org), taking place Dec. 2-5, 2013, in Orlando, Fla.  His presentation, "Current Department of Defense Training & Simulation Trends and Analysis," is on day three of the event during the Innovation Showcase and will provide a comprehensive analysis of the Department of Defense training and simulation market, highlighting vital trends and the future of the industry.

I/ITSEC brings together government, military, academic and research organizations from the U.S. and more than 70 nations, making it the world's largest and most comprehensive modeling, simulation and virtual reality conference and exhibition. At I/ITSEC, the frontiers of training and simulation are probed and expanded with a full-scope view. The conference will feature hundreds of cutting-edge research presentations, as well as a series of world-class special sessions.

The theme for 2013 is "Concepts and Technologies - Empowering an Agile Force." This all-inclusive three-day conference program covers a range of topics including the state of the industry, the challenges around critical defense operations, next generation technologies and interoperability solutions that remedy these issues.

The partnership with I/ITSEC is part of Frost & Sullivan's Aerospace and Defense Growth Partnership Service program.  For more information on Frost & Sullivan's offerings, please email Jennifer Carson, Corporate Communications at jennifer.carson@frost.com.
