National Defense Magazine reports that “a wave of new simulation technologies is helping Army personnel improve their cognitive skills so they can make better decisions faster during battles.”

“’We are taking a neuroscience approach to simulation exercises,’ said Alison Rubin, executive vice president of business development at Conflict Kinetics. ‘We teach your mind to take an image in quicker; your body to align with your decisions quicker; and your central nervous system to react in the appropriate way.’”

“Conflict Kinetics focuses on short, intense, purpose-built drills. Through its synthetic marksmanship training program, it is able to replicate the physical and ocular challenges of combat, according to Rubin.”
