M&S Primer

At the request of Congressman J. Randy Forbes and the Congressional Modeling & Simulation Caucus, NTSA has created “A Primer on Modeling and Simulation: The World of M&S,” a 25-page booklet intended to give the average layperson an understanding of Modeling & Simulation and its history, applications, value and potential. To view the Primer, please click on the Primer graphic.

"Our Industry has a very important job to do in providing the very best of training equipment and simulation technologies for our forces in the field," said NTSA President James Robb. "We need to ensure that the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines are better trained than ever before."

NTSA provides the training, simulation, related support systems and training services industries a focused, formal organization
to represent and promote their business interests in the market place. The Association provides a forum to communicate the full
capability and broad characteristics of all of the elements of training systems and services to include associated support services.
