Defence training and education coherence (DTEC)

DTEC provides a defence wide coherent approach to provide better training and education, reduce costs and do this with environmental benefits.

This collection was withdrawn on

This has been replaced by the Defence Modelling and Simulation Coherence

The DTEC approach has a goal to:

‘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

Overview

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.

Simulation

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.

Compliance 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).

Current activities

DTEC is engaged in a number of its activities including:

  • a systems of systems approach to coherent TE&S capability
  • research and possible industry input to DTEC (via the Defence Simulation Centre (DSC) Industry Advisory Group)
  • an enduring DSC leading to a Defence TE&S Centre (DTESC)
