The Patuxent Partnership and Patuxent River Squadron #18 of the Association of Naval Aviation will host their 23rd panel, “Next Generation of Training: Live Virtual Constructive (LVC),” on Thursday, April 30 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum.
LVC combines a live simulation involving real people operating real systems, a virtual simulation involving real people operating simulated systems, and a constructive simulation with simulated people operating simulated systems. Combining all three simulations enables units to interact with one another and to conduct a coordinated fight as though physically together on the same ground.
“The Patuxent River ANA Squadron is pleased to team with The Patuxent Partnership again,” said Mark Converse, the commanding officer of the local ANA Squadron. “This will be an outstanding opportunity for the local public to hear the Navy’s senior leadership speak about their strategic vision of Fleet training and readiness.”
Panelists include RADM Michael Manazir, Director Air Warfare (OPNAV N98); RADM John Haley, Commander Naval Air Force Atlantic; Mr. John Meyers, SES, Technical Director, NAWCTSD; Director, NAVAIR Human Systems Department; CAPT Frank Morley, Program Manager, PMA 265; CAPT Carl Chebi Program Manager, Air Warfare Mission Area/From the Air Program Office, PMA 298.
“TPP works to foster technology innovation within our community,” said Bonnie Green, Executive Director, The Patuxent Partnership. “LVC is a critical training advancement for the Navy and DoD.”
This event is open to the public. Advance registration is $10.00 and strongly recommended at www.paxpartnership.org, or $15.00 at the door.
The Patuxent Partnership works with government, industry and academia on initiatives in science and technology, hosts programs of interest to NAVAIR and the broader DoD community, and supports workforce development including education initiatives and professional development.
