These military training innovations range from immersive aircraft interfaces to modern warfare simulators that prepare soldiers for combat. As modern weapons and military vehicles become more advanced, innovations like wearable cockpits, self-steering ammunition and extensively armored tanks are on the rise.

While engineers are working to create more complex versions of air, water and land vehicles, programmers are connecting military gear with better tech capabilities. From futuristic vehicle interfaces to connected weapons, tech advancements are making the need for human soldiers obsolete and suggest that the future of warfare will rely on machines rather than people.

The rise of intuitive drones, self-destructing vehicles and simulated combat apps changes the way many view modern warfare. In addition to connected weaponry, the use of augmented reality is making military training more realistic and immersive for those preparing for a real battlefield.
