OA4604 Wargaming Applications

Wargaming has been an essential tool for military planning and decision making for centuries. A properly designed wargame provides a structured environment that allows military professionals to gain insight into complex military problems. The first half of the Wargaming Applications course teaches the fundamentals of wargaming using a mix of lectures and practical exercises. The second half of the course focuses on applying wargaming fundamentals to answer a DoD sponsor's real-life requirement. Student groups will design, develop, conduct, and analyze a wargame to address sponsor's needs.
