Marine Corps Looks to Build New Platform to Conduct Large-Scale Wargames

1 min read


The U.S. Marine Corps is seeking advanced analytics, visualization, models and simulation technologies to build a new virtual environment where the service can conduct large and complex wargames, Marine Corps Times reported Tuesday.

The service wants to develop a platform that will enable senior leaders and forces to test operational plans, develop concepts of operations and collect information to prioritize resources.

To further discuss the program, the Marine Corps will hold an industry day on Dec. 20, where the service will also seek industry input to identify technical concepts and requirements, according to a FedBizOpps noticed posted Monday.  

In 2017, the service branch announced a three- to five-year plan to establish a wargaming simulation center at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia. 

The service hopes to use the facility to conduct 20 wargames a year, including two large-scale, 250-participant exercises. 

Interested parties can submit white papers for the new program through July 2019.
