Christina Balis, Global Campaign Director for QinetiQ, is the guest on this week's episode of The Warfighter Podcast, talking Tom and Colin through the non-technological aspects of tackling the challenges of Training Transformation.

Christina, calling on her broad experience from within and outside defence, argues that the challenges in training for a multi-domain battlespace are around the people, processes and institutions, rather anything technological.

This important conversation looks at how we need attract and train staff, while helping them become future commanders, highlighting the need for adaptability and decision making.

Synthetic internet is not a new phenomenon but Robert explains the new approaches and applications that are being rolled out, which is especially relevant to multi-domain operations and the 'grey zone'.

As ever we are joined by Andy Fawkes from MS&T, bringing us an update on the latest happenings within modelling and simulation. This week we discuss fully immersive suits, the crossover of technologies from F1 simulation and ongoing developments in international training and collaboration.
