"U.S. Military Training and Simulation Markets" provides revenue forecasts, U.S. DOD training and simulation budgets, and analysis of major American training and simulation programs.
The report examines the following market segments: air, land, and sea training and simulation, C4ISR/constructive training and simulation, live training, and military education.
Asymmetric warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan has increased the need for military training and simulation. It has also encouraged the development of new and novel training and simulation solutions, which has saved numerous American lives.
Since 2005, the U.S. Army and Marine Corps have invested substantially in new live training solutions to counter challenges faced in Iraq and Afghanistan, including convoy simulators, new Military Operations on Urban Terrain (MOUT) facilities, and counter-IED trainers.
As described in the report, the financial burden of the Global War on Terror (GWOT) has taken resources away from further training and simulation. Therefore, the industry is being forced to deliver better solutions for less.
"To address this issue, training and simulation providers could offer highly reliable solutions where end users have on-demand access," says the Frost & Sullivan analyst. "On the other hand, offering modular and upgradeable solutions could enhance total value and return-on-investment because end users can maintain concurrency without disposing high-cost equipment."
