DoD Training and Simulation Market

DoD Training and Simulation Market

The Department of Defense (DoD) budget request in the 2015 President’s Budget (PB) was $􂀀 billion, with an additional $􂀀billion requested for overseas contingency operations (OCO) and $ billion for the president’s new Opportunity, Growth, and Security Initiative (OGSI). The 2016 PB was released near the end of the time allotted for this research and could not be included in the assessment.

Training and simulation funding through 2019 is forecast to experience a negative􂀀% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).

Operations and maintenance (O&M) funding for training and simulation is expected to decrease at 􂀀% per year through 2019.

Procurement and research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) funding will decrease 􂀀% per year between 2014 and 2019.

Procurement funding will decrease at 􂀀% per year.

RDT&E funding will increase at 􂀀% per year.

These trends support the development of live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) technologies to reduce the total training costs over the Fiscal Years Defense Program (FYDP).

About this report

As the Department of Defense’s discretionary spending levels off, the training and simulation market will remain relatively strong. As the services try to find the correct balance between live and simulated training, money will be spent on more immersive, virtual training to achieve an overall cost savings. Many issues such as networking standards and security need to be addressed before robust live, virtual, and constructive networks can be effectively implemented. With decreasing defense budgets, traditional defense contractors will need to continue forming partnerships with commercial and other defense firms to provide the best technology-driven proficiency training at reasonable costs and to seek out foreign market opportunities.
