Military training, simulation and education will form a key pillar of Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI), the market leading event for land, sea and air applications of defence and security products, technology and services.

DSEI is taking place at ExCeL London between 15-18 September.

Airbus Defence and Space will showcase its products, technologies and services using virtual reality. A first for both the company and DSEI, the entire stand has been designed around bespoke virtual reality cockpits; and will transport visitors into a virtual world wearing Oculus Rift headsets. This will also allow it to convey the breadth of its current portfolio across defence, space, military and civil aircraft in a unique way.

Visitors will experience 3 scenarios: disaster relief, a virtual air show and even a trip to Mars. The disaster relief scenario features the world-leading Airbus A400M military transporter bringing aid to a small town that has been devastated by an earthquake.

Training to counter the growing threat from Chemical, Biological, Radiological or Nuclear (CBRN) attack is essential in this time of heightened security. Argon Electronics will launch a new radiation detector simulator. The ADM-300 simulator replicates the Canberra ADM-300A (V1B) radiation survey meter which detects beta and gamma radiation and is deployed with the UK Ministry of Defence and the US Air Force, among others.

Maritime training will also feature prominently with SeaOwl Group's VN Partisan naval training vessel making a DSEI debut in the ExCeL's Royal Victoria Dock. The commercially-owned ship, which is currently used to train the French Navy, will form part of an exclusive waterborne showcase staged by 43 Commando Royal Marines, as they demonstrate their rapid boarding methods and ability to safely secure a vessel.

On Thursday 17 September, Paul Appelquist, Head of Future Business at Babcock International Group, will address the issue of Reskilling for the 21st Century. He will be followed by Corinne Jeffrey, Director, UK MOD Defence Simulation Centre, who will look at Requirements for training interoperability, before Lt Cdr Paul Newall, UK MOD, examines F-35 training and simulation. These sessions will be hosted by ITEC, the annual military training and simulation event also organised by Clarion Events.

CAE has recently been awarded defence contracts to provide simulation products, operational systems and training services for a range of global military customers. Some of the key contracts include delivering MQ-1 Predator/MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft aircrew training services for the US Air Force, while Mitsubishi Electric United States has selected CAE to provide its magnetic anomaly detection technology for twenty P-1 maritime patrol aircraft operated by the Japanese Ministry of Defence.

Close Air Solutions will also showcase its Ruggedized Deployable Immersive Close Air Support Simulator (RD iCASS), a modular version of the iCASS Full Mission Simulator that was delivered and accredited as part of the UK JTAC Training programme.

Malvern-based company, 3SDL provides a broad range of training consultancy services, including detailed Training Needs Analysis, and specialised courses in development and delivery.

Harquebus is responsible for training the intelligence teams of Counter Terrorist Special Forces. A key benefit of this training enables intelligence professionals to appropriately contextualise their operational environments, ask better questions and employ the latest analysis techniques in support of their decision-makers.

Lockheed Martin is meeting the increasing global demand for C-130J military airlifter and LM-100J commercial flight training with a new International Training Centre (ITC) to be located at the corporation's Marietta, Georgia, Aeronautics facility. Lockheed Martin has a legacy of C-130 training with nearly 200,000 students trained to date. The centre is under construction and will open in 2018.

Zen Technologies will display an Anti-Aircraft Air Defence simulator, UAV mission simulator, Tactical Engagement Simulator, Medium Machine Gun simulator, Weapons Simulator, 81mm Mortar Training Simulator, Armour Combat Training System and a Smart Target system. A Combat Training Centre concept will also be featured.
