Will the simulation requirements for Land 400, and its promise to introduce a mounted close combat capability as a major component of the Combined Arms Fighting System (CAFS), meet Army’s aspirations for an all-embracing synthetic environment?

Simulation means different things to different people. Simulation in Defence has always been a many-headed beast. It means different things to different people from full motion flight simulators to decision support with experimentation and modelling technologies, high level single-Service/joint training and everything else in between.

Simulation is arguably the fastest growing technology within the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) with all three services acquiring a variety of simulation systems to enhance training, sustain proficiency and achieve cost effectiveness.
Simulation and modelling are vital enablers for Capability Development Group (CDG), which draws on the resources of the Joint Decision Support and Simulation Centre (JDSC), the Rapid Prototyping Development and Evaluation program (RPDE), and the Defence Science and Technology organisation (DSTO) for activities ranging from Future Soldier experimentation to preparation of the Defence Capability Plan (DCP).
Already a leader in the use of simulation for training, including mission rehearsal and mission-specific training, the ever-adaptive Army is on the road to institutionalising simulation, garnering its many other benefits in such diverse areas as operational planning, decision making, concept evaluation, and modelling for options assessment.
There will only be two LHD ships. With that in mind, the necessary training for all the crews, both permanent and occasional, will need to use land-based methods of training to maximise their knowledge before going on the ships themselves. Simulation, modelling and experimentation have a huge role to play for both Army and Navy.
