vI/ITSEC Focus Event Brings Together Top Industry Leaders to Imagine How Disruptive Technologies Will Transform Warfighter Training

Disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual, augmented and mixed reality, distributed training, big data analytics, and Lifelong Learning technologies are transforming the way we work and learn – but how?

To picture that future, one must include experts within the Defense industry. Join us at vI/ITSEC 2020, the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training conference for the Focus Event, “A View From The Top: Disruptive Technologies that will Transform Training.” This panel will assemble industry leaders, five Chief Executive Officers in the training and simulation industry, to share their thoughts, insights and forecasts on the most promising technologies airmed at optimizing Warfighter performance.

  • When & Where: Thursday, December 3, 10:00 AM – 1130

As a community, vIITSEC is looking to expand its presence across industry, across different size companies, and internationally. Rarely do we have the opportunity to have multiple executives share their visions and strategies with the audience. This eclectic executive panel will share experiences taken from defense and adjacent markets, such as critical healthcare, law enforcement, and aviation. They will bring forth the point of view from the “C suite” on innovation that works and has a definite impact on mission effectiveness for the Warfighter.

Moderated by former I/ITSEC Industry Keynote Speaker Daniel Serfaty, CEO and Founder of Aptima, Inc., the panel will represent diverse perspectives from small, medium, and large companies across the training industry and adjacent markets, all of whom are thinking about innovating for the Warfighter.

The panelists include:

  • Mike Knowles, President, Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions, Senior Vice President, Cubic Corporation
  • Don Ariel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Raydon Corporation
  • Marlo Brooke, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, AVATAR Partners
  • Ulrik Juul Christensen, M.D., Chief Executive Officer, Area9 Group
