MS&T Magazine announces the Award Winners for its prestigious 2019 MS&T Industry Simulation & Training Awards

Industry Award

Military Simulation & Training Magazine (MS&T), a Halldale Group publication, proudly announces the winners of the 18th annual MS&T Industry Simulation & Training Awards after collecting over 6000 votes from its readers and subscribers. These awards serve to annually recognize companies and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the training and effectiveness of US and overseas soldiers, sailors and airmen: our warfighters.

MS&T and Halldale Group editorial staff selected the top finalists from nearly 80 submissions, which lead to 18 nominees in six categories from which voters chose the winning teams, businesses, and industry leaders.

MS&T Publisher and Halldale Group CEO, Andy Smith commented:
“We are again thrilled to be able to recognize, via the work of our editorial team and the readers of MS&T, worthy winners of our 2019 awards. All nominees and of course the finalists and winners deserve our thanks, as well as those of our citizens for the work they do, which allows those who go in harm’s way on our behalf to do so as safely and effectively as possible.

“Over the past several years we have worked to design an impartial and credible awards system so that these awards are really meaningful. I would like to recognize our editorial team, who have led this exacting process with project manager Holly Foster, and above all I’d like to thank the companies who submitted their businesses, programs and products to scrutiny, and the voters who responded in record numbers this year.”
