The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) has awarded BAE Systems a $19 million contract to develop a Wargaming Center prototype to be built at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia.
BAE Systems will integrate artificial intelligence, machine learning, game theory, multi-domain modeling and simulation, and predictive data analytics, into the prototype which will provide greater metrics and training on many wargaming processes.
“We will build on our experience supporting the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory Wargaming Division and partner with a diverse team of digital technology experts to produce an advanced prototype to help train an efficient, precise, and consistent force capable of fighting future wars in multiple domains,” said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Intelligence Solutions business.
“This prototype will integrate big data and advanced analytics in a secure cloud environment for future wargaming design and assessments,” he said.
BAE Systems is one of three primes selected for the 18-month cloud modeling and simulation phase. As a lead systems integrator, BAE Systems formed a team of industry experts with breakthrough technology offerings and predictive analytics-based wargaming solutions that automate planning, execution, and post-game analytics.
