Army Seeks to Develop New Realistic Simulation Environment

The U.S. Army is seeking to develop a new virtual training environment with higher fidelity than older simulation systems, Defense News reported Monday.

The Synthetic Training Environment effort aims to replace the Army’s stove-piped trainers made in the 80s and 90s with a virtual multi-domain environment that provides enhanced realism.

Maj. Gen. Maria Gervais, who leads the effort, told Defense News that the STE would be finished much earlier than 2030 due to technological advancements in the gaming industry.

The upcoming Army Futures Command will contribute support for the STE’s development.
