‘Ensure defence wide coherence for whole force training, education and simulation (TE&S) systems that delivers a capability such that we can train across the spectrum of force packages and conflict types.’
In support of the above, DTEC aims to deliver:
value for money across the enterprise (highest priority)
clearly identified TE&S requirements
conformance to agreed standards
commonality and re-use of data, models and platforms
consistent, enduring, accessible, agile and adaptable TE&S solutions
DTEC was born from the strategic defence and security review 2010 that stated that the Ministry of Defence (MOD) should embrace a step change in its exploitation of modern simulation training systems in order to increase operational effectiveness, reduce costs and minimise the MOD’s environmental footprint.
Recognising that simulation is used more widely than just training and education (T&E) across defence, a training, education and simulation (TE&S) technical authority has been formed to provide direction towards technical coherence.
The TE&S (formerly DTEC) rules, which describe what is meant by TE&S compliance and therefore help to provide coherence, are available in Part 6 of the Governance and management of defence individual training, education and skills (JSP 822).
