Maj. Gen. Maria Gervais, director of the Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team at Army Futures Command, will serve as a keynote speaker at Potomac Officers Club’s Future Virtual Battlefield Event on Wednesday, July 22nd.
Gervais is the director of the Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team, Orlando, Florida. The STE is charged with rapidly expanding the Army’s synthetic training capability to the point of need, which will enable units located anywhere in the world to train seamlessly together in an integrated live, virtual and constructive environment.
The Department of Defense’s business practices and approaches were not traditionally designed to quickly field emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, cloud computing, advanced data analytics; however, these technologies have shifted the world around us.
As the federal government and defense agencies continue to integrate more emerging technologies, the public and private sectors must present a united front to transform legacy mindsets by widening skills gaps in a process-driven culture risk to enhance DoD’s agility and battlefield edge.
At Potomac Officers Club’s Future Virtual Battlefield Event, Gervais will use her knowledge acquired from her career in the federal sector to discuss the priorities and challenges of modern warfare.
Gervais will also be joined by Scott Gilman, deputy director of the U.S. Army Modeling and Simulation Office (AMSO) and Favio Lopez, chief operating officer (COO) of Trideum, who will serve as panelists at the event.
