The MS&T Industry Simulation & Training Awards is an annual awards program recognizing individual companies within the global defense industry for consistently providing technologies, services and solutions that best prepare military forces to achieve their mission. The products and services of these companies help military personnel in air, land and sea environments to prepare for deployment via Live, Virtual and Constructive training environments, and to ensure survivability and maintain tactical and strategic superiority.

MS&T staff sent applications to more than 550 companies requesting a thorough briefing of their products, services and programs. Using primarily the submitted information, plus their own knowledge of the industry and its programs, MS&T’s international editorial team - most of whom are long-term S&T specialists - convened to select potential awardees and evaluate the various categories before compiling the final selections.

“Recognizing the role of the Simulation & Training industry in helping to ensure our defense and security is long overdue,” said Halldale President Andy Smith. “This industry can boast of enormously talented people and companies that take seriously their responsibilities to the warfighter. Halldale is proud to shine a spotlight on these companies and eventually the individuals who make up those companies.”

The Simulation & Training awards will continue to evolve with new awards classifications and new resources to assess, judge and recommend the star global players. The initiative follows on from MS&T’s sister publication – The Journal for Civil Aviation Training – which recently focused on individual civil S&T achievement, with three iconic individuals recognized at the annual World Aviation Training Symposium (WATS) event in Orlando in May of 2017.

More information on the MS&T 2017 ribbon winning companies and finalists can be found in the September issue of Military Simulation & Training magazine and at http://www.awards.mstmagazine.com.
