President's Corner


A message from RADM James Robb, President, NTSA

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the tremendous success of I/ITSEC 2014. We had a great turnout from industry and government and the conference committee put on a great program. The show floor was very energized and all reports were positive from everyone I spoke with. We also had a great response to the new mobile show management planning tool where we observed over 26,000 hits on the session and planning features. We will work to expand this service next year.

I would like to point out three great events for the spring of 2015. The first is the NTSA Readiness Summit being held on 25 February at the Crystal Gateway Marriott here in DC. This event is focused on bringing together stakeholders from the Readiness and Training communities to discuss and debate investments in Training and Readiness. We will lead off with a keynote from Congressman Rob Wittman who chairs the Readiness Committee in the House. The program intends to discuss readiness challenges, current spending plans, game changing technologies related to readiness as well as key readiness enablers like IT, IA, Ranges and LVC.

We have tied the NMSC Annual Meeting to this event on 26 February. Please come and support our efforts to bring together leaders from the entire M&S community. The Policy committee has been doing a lot of Strategic Planning work which will be discussed at this one day event.

The last event I would like to highlight this month is MODSIM World. This year it is being held in the Virginia Beach Convention Center from 31 March to 2 April. We have expanded our venue selection to support growth as we expect this event to become the premier venue for cross domain M&S presentations and discussion in the Nation. This year's program is very dynamic and is full of examples of how M&S adds value across a wide range of applications.

Finally NTSA wishes you all a Happy and prosperous New Year.

RADM James Robb, USN (Ret)
NTSA President
