As technology continues to advance at an unprecedented pace, the future of military training is undergoing a massive transformation. The Indian Defence Industry has recognized the need for skilled and efficient forces, which have become increasingly important in complex modern warfare scenarios. With VR simulator training and virtual simulation becoming more accessible, it unlocks a whole new potential for military training that can revolutionize how soldiers are trained and prepared for any situation they may face on the battlefield.

Indian Defence Industry – an Overview

The Indian Defence Industry is one of the largest and most complex in the world. It is one of the major spending sectors in the Indian economy. The geographical and topographical diversity, especially the 15,000 km long border which India shares with seven neighbouring countries, poses unique challenges to the Indian Defence Forces. Various organisations in the Army, Navy Air Force and Paramilitary Forces are continuously working together to ensure national security and maintain peace in India.

India has an ambitious policy to shift from being the world’s largest importer of defence equipment to meeting the majority of its needs through domestic production. With an ever-growing need for modernisation and up gradation of military equipment, the Indian government has been promoting indigenous production through initiatives such as ‘Make in India’.

At the 14th edition of Asia’s biggest aero show Aero India 2023, PM Modi announced the world’s largest defence manufacturing base that the central government aims to take India’s defence exports up to five billion dollars by 2024- 2025. Further stating that India is not just a market for global defence companies but also a potential defence partner and an emerging global powerhouse.

The Indian Defence Industry holds immense promise for growth while ensuring safety at home – now more than ever before!

Military Education and Training – Need of the hour

The Indian Defence Industry is one of the most significant sectors that contribute to the country’s security and sovereignty. India is the fifth largest military spender in the world. It has the second-largest standing army in the world (1.3 million active service personnel). Ensuring readiness of the forces at all times is becoming increasingly important. Indian forces must be ready to conduct military operations at any hour of the day and, if necessary, defeat all enemies. Readiness is essential to the Army and is dependent on how well units are manned, equipped, trained, and led. There is an urgent need to relook at the traditional methods of training and upgrade them with more advanced and immersive virtual simulation solutions.

Several projects are initiated by the Indian Army that aims at strengthening their combat skills. PM Modi in the year 2023, addressed the first batch of 24,000 Agniveers of the three services (army, navy, and air force) undergoing their basic training at various locations across the country. Apart from these projects, virtual simulation training has been an innovative solution for military training. As VR technology advances, it provides a safer and more realistic environment for training soldiers in various scenarios without risking their lives or wasting resources.

Hon Prime Minister of India- Narendra Modi said that the virtual simulation will be a game changer in strengthening the armed forces and making them future-ready for the challenges that lie ahead, especially the cyber warfare making them “Aatmanirbhar”.

Virtual Reality Simulator Training for Military

The world is witnessing unprecedented growth in technology, and the military sector is no exception. With the advancement of VR and AR technology, military training has become more immersive and effective than ever before. Modern military simulations are using advanced technology to combine gaming and war fighting and have created sophisticated virtual simulation technology. The untapped potential of virtual reality in military training, highlighting its numerous benefits and discussing how it can shape the future of warfare.

There are several reasons to believe why virtual simulation training is considered to be a game changer for military and defence training:

  • Experienced-Based Training: Virtual reality simulations provide highly realistic and immersive training experiences for military personnel Enhancing Realism and Immersion. Simulating diverse environments and scenarios like urban combat or jungle warfare provides a new level of realism that cannot be achieved through traditional methods.
  • Cost-effective Training: When compared with traditional training methods, virtual reality simulations can significantly reduce the costs associated with training. For example, live weapon training exercises require expensive ammunition and can be dangerous, while infantry weapon training simulators can provide a similar experience without the associated costs and risks.
  • Highly Scalable and Accessible: Virtual reality simulations allow large numbers of trainees to be trained together safely in a virtual environment. Virtual simulation training can be made accessible anywhere, anytime, and even in case of emergencies.
  • After action analysis and feedback: In virtual reality simulations, trainee performance data can be collected, recorded, and reviewed. This data can be used later to improve training methods and identify areas where further training may be needed.
  • Safe Training Environment: By providing a safe environment for training, virtual reality simulations can mitigate risks associated with traditional training methods. This can reduce the risk of injury or death to military personnel during training exercises.
  • Team Collaboration and Communication: Virtual reality simulations allow training a group of people together in a single environment, preparing them for difficult situations or team operations. For example, Military Driving Simulator allows convoy training to a fleet of drivers and trains them on radio communications in a safe environment.There are various virtual reality simulators already in use by the Military for training their forces.
  • Infantry Weapon Training Simulators: The potential of virtual reality in the field of weapon training simulators is immense. The simulator simulates different firearms like Glock, INSAS, Sniper, Riffle, and Pistols in a virtual environment and allows the training to practice the skills in a virtual ground Utilizing Infantry weapon training simulations has been a practical approach to improving soldier readiness while ensuring their safety during training sessions.
  • Military Driver Training Simulator: Driving simulators have revolutionized the way defence organizations approach driver training and simulation. The simulator is an actual replica of the vehicle with fully functional controls that helps to train military personnel for real-life situations like convoy driving, or off road driving that can be too dangerous or cost-prohibitive to replicate on a physical level.
  • Modern Warfare Training: Virtual reality has revolutionized the concept of modern warfare training, offering unlimited potential to prepare soldiers for real-life combat scenarios. Simulators for Modern Warfare Training enable joint training exercises for Army Navy and Airforce. It provides an immersive and interactive experience that simulated various battlefield situations, including urban warfare, hostage rescue missions, and counterterrorism operations and allows team training in a single immersive environment.
  • VR training for Aircraft Maintenance: This VR Training solution allows trainees to collaborate in real-time digital twins of an Airfield or Airside. The training solution simulates an actual aircraft with faults and enables testing of the trainee skills in a hazard-free environment.
