The NAWCTSD Lab Leads are responsible for driving innovation and solutions to our sailors and fellow warfighters.  This is YOUR opportunity to meet these key individuals. 

The objective of this roundtable discussion or “Citrus Talk” is to gain insight into the mission, vision, focus, challenges (hard problems), and provide an overall opportunity to share how the Lab Leads support the future warfighter. Unlike the PALTS, which are procurement focused, the Citrus Talk is a forum where we encourage non-salespeople and more science focused professionals to attend, to discuss challenges and solutions. The idea behind this roundtable discussion is to foster the sharing of ideas and innovations, and it gives the Lab Leads an opportunity to understand what technology may be out in industry as well share with industry what technology is being created at NAWCTSD. Perhaps there may be companies with technology that no one has been exposed to.

There is no FAR acquisition talk during the Citrus Talk, nor the talk of any project currently under contract. This roundtable will be limited to 45 in-person attendees with an additional virtual option where viewers can ask questions in the chat. We would like to keep this discussion intimate and interactive as opposed to a briefing, note taking, and no discussion.

The Central Florida Tech Grove is a hub for accelerating collaboration and innovation in defense modeling, simulation, training, and human performance.  Tech Grove is located in the Central Florida Research Park in Orlando, Florida which is the epicenter of the nation's largest cluster of government, industry, academic, and industry organizations developing and delivering training and simulation products for our nation's military. Tech Grove was established in 2020 through a Partnership Intermediary Agreement (PIA) between the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) and the University of Central Florida Research Foundation.  Eight other Department of Defense entities are Tech Grove members: US Army Program Executive Office for Simulation Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), US Air Force Agency for Modeling & Simulation (AFAMS), US Marine Corps Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS), US Army Simulation & Training Technology Center (STTC), US Army Futures Command Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team (STE CFT), Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), Defense Health Agency (DHA), and the Office of Naval Research through the NavalX Central Florida Tech Bridge.
