AI, Machine Learning and Predictive Data Analytics Key Components
The USMC has awarded BAE Systems a $19 million (€16.1 million) contract to develop a prototype design for a new state-of-the-art wargaming centre to be built at Quantico, VA.
The company will integrate advanced technologies into the prototype, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, game theory, multi-domain modeling and simulation and predictive data analytics, which will provide improved metrics and training for 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, VP 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.”
Since 2010, BAE Systems has supported the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory Wargaming Division with wargame planning, preparation, execution and assessment. Deep understanding of the Marine Corps’ mission has positioned the company well for supporting further wargaming processes and identifying ways for the Marines to benefit from new technologies to enhance capabilities.
BAE Systems is one of three primes selected for the 18-month cloud modelling and simulation phase. As a lead systems integrator, BAE Systems has formed a team of industry experts with breakthrough technology offerings and predictive analytics-based wargaming solutions that automate planning, execution, and post-game analytics.
