DSET was set up in 2016 to facilitate military to military engagement; and to give military the opportunity to educate industry in a challenge lead approach.
International military and government drive the DSET agenda and deliver the majority of presentations.
DSET was set up with a very clear set of objectives: A military set agenda; a predominately military delivered conference; and to provide a relevant open community forum for honest debate and discussions amongst the military and industry of the training and simulation sector.
The co-location of DSET alongside Omega’s Future Indirect Fires, enable a pairing of two communities with very strong ties, and the joint interest in training, education and simulation allow international military representatives to discuss their current and future training challenges and requirements for JTAC and Forward Air Controllers in a highly focussed environment.
DSET runs a Military Advisory Panel (MAP) throughout the year for each DSET to ensure that the sessions address issues raised by the Military.
We aim for this to be a forum of real action and engagement for all attendees.
DSET was held for the first time in Feb 2016, with 200 attendees, 60% of whom were military, with 15 countries represented and a predominantly military delivered conference programme.
2017 saw 300 attendees with the same military to industry ratio, and 17 countries represented.
For 2018, DSET hopes to increase the military and industry attendees to the event to build a regular community driven time to meet to discuss challenges and innovations.
The endeavour to deliver a community driven conference and event will continue for March 2018.
WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK!
