IDF, Technology and Education

Education in the IDF

Located in southern Israel, the Israel Defense Forces’ largest military training base is home to a variety of military courses. The base is nicknamed “Training Base City” because of its size. In recent years, the IDF has made military education breakthroughs in several fields.

3D videos are in place in order for the soldiers to experience and learn properly. An armored vehicle simulator prepares military drivers for their task. Dolls that bleed and even scream are used for the medic courses. An app films the soldiers, allowing their commanders to later comment on their performance.

3D printers are used to create props like guns and body parts, the real objects being too expensive or dangerous. As the soldiers may encounter the real thing during service, it is important that the printed item look authentic. Using high-end technology, the IDF trains its soldiers sufficiently and prepares them fully for their respective mission and service.
