Training in a Digital World

Latest Technology

This year’s theme, Training in a Digital World, highlights the Department of the Air Force’s drive to upskill personnel through digital training. The goal of the M&S Summit is to gather Air Force and Space Force M&S experts to learn about new M&S initiatives and techniques, network across military services and with industry experts, and to hear our technological leaders’ perspectives on how M&S can transition more training from the real world to digital.


The 2024 DAF M&S Summit will provide a forum for shared information, ideas, and connection of M&S professionals across the DoD, industry, academia, and international partners. The three-day summit agenda includes:

  • Eminent Keynote Speakers from Military, Government, and Industry Leaders
  • Distinguished Panel Discussions and Q&A sessions
  • Track Session Presentation Focus Areas
  • VIP Tour for Distinguished Visitors
  • M&S Industry Exhibition Hall
  • Classified M&S Briefing Sessions
  • M&S Tool Overview

DAFMSS international attendance and participation is limited to FVEY and NATO Member Countries.


Hosted by Richard Tempalski, Department of the Air Force chief modeling and simulation officer, and Lt Gen Brian S. Robinson, AETC commander, the summit will cover current and future modeling and simulation activities and how they support the fusion of air and space, as well as their impact on multi-domain operations to cultivate a distinct M&S community culture.
