Lt. Gen. Mike Lundy, commander of the U.S. Army combined arms center, has said the service branch will increase synthetic training operations at home station and combat training centers.
According to an Army report published Monday, Lundy discussed the emergence of synthetic training technologies and efforts to update current simulator technologies at the Association of the U.S. Army annual meeting and exposition.
Lundy noted increasingly complex environments would require many training repetitions to prepare Soldiers for operations in contested air, land, sea, space and cyber domains.
The USACAS commander added he anticipates the use of synthetic training to commence at home stations and expand at brigade, division and corps levels.
Lundy also said efforts related to leader development and professional military education have begun to catch up with the Field Manual 3.0 “Operations” guideline which tackles Army tactics to be implemented through the next five years.
He added the curriculum will also be updated to include topics regarding the complex airspace, virtual recruiting and banking activities of enemy forces as well as psychological assessments on adversaries, local population and coalition forces.
