MS&T, the International Defence Training Journal, announces the release of the 18th Annual Industry Simulation & Training Awards program, which recognizes the contribution of companies in supporting warfighter readiness across the current calendar year.
There are six award categories this year including Outstanding Innovative Product, Outstanding Service and Support, Outstanding Training System Integration Project, Small Business of the Year, and the Pioneer Award, which is intended to recognize an individual for consistent, long-term contributions to the art, science and community of simulation and training. The Pioneer Award is mirrored in the Civil Aviation Training Pioneer Awards given by sister publication CAT Magazine. The sixth and newest category award is for Outstanding VR/AR/MR Application and will recognize the innovative use of VR/AR/MR technologies that develop effective and efficient training and performance support interventions.
A panel of MS&T editors will select a maximum of three finalists in each of the award categories. MS&T print, digital and eNewsletter subscribers will be asked to select the winner by voting for the best finalist in each category. The voting period and directions will be announced by email. All readers will be limited to a single vote.
