NATO CAX Workshop

The 14th NATO Computer Assisted Exercise Forum,  organized by the NATO Modelling and Simulation Centre of Excellence (NATO M&S COE), is now NATO CA2X2 Forum (Computer Aided Analysis, Exercise, Experimentation), an event where military users, industry and academia meet and discuss the M&S Discipline, Exercises, Experimentation, Wargaming and Analysis, and see demonstrations and presentations on latest technology and trends.

The workshop will commence with an introduction from Colonel Michele Turi, Director, NATO Modeling & Simulation Centre of Excellence

The new NATO CA2X2 FORUM 2019 Conference, whose general theme is “Transformational Power of Simulation” will be focused on four main areas:

  • EDUCATION, TRAINING AND M&S AS A DISCIPLINE
    The human dimension: improving the effectiveness of training, education and the M&S Discipline
  • INNOVATIVE CONCEPTS AND EXPERIMENTATION
    Application of M&S to support new concepts and best practices; using M&S for experimentation and development of new capabilities
  • EXERCISE, WARGAMING AND ANALYSIS
    Operational application of simulation: training, verifying procedures, and decision support
  • M&S INDUSTRY TOOLS AND SOLUTIONS
    Industry presentations on the latest innovative M&S tools and solutions on the market

NATO CAX Forum Future

1530 – 1600 Workshop on topics the M&S community would like to see addressed in CA2X2 Forum

1600-1630 A discussion on renewed focus of NATO on leveraging modelling and simulation, and the adaptations the M&S COE is making to address this shift
