BAE to Design Prototype of New Marine Corps Wargaming Center

BAE Systems has won a $19M contract to provide the Marine Corps with a prototype design of a new Wargaming Center to be built at the service's base in Quantico, Virginia.

The company will integrate advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, game theory, multi-domain modeling, simulation and predictive analytics to enable greater metrics and training at the center, BAE said.

“This prototype will integrate big data and advanced analytics in a secure cloud environment for future wargaming design and assessments,” said Peder Jungck, BAE's vice president and general manager for intelligence solutions and a Potomac Officers Club member.

In a press release, BAE said it has supported the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory Wargaming Division since 2010, providing planning, preparation, execution and assessment services. 

BAE said its experience and understanding of the service's mission makes it well-positioned to support new wargaming initiatives and identify new ways for the Marine Corps to benefit from new technologies. 

The company said it is one of three prime contractors selected for the 18-month cloud modeling and simulation phase. 

BAE added that it has formed a team of industry experts who will leverage new technologies and predictive analytics-based wargaming solutions that automate planning, execution and post-game analytics. 

"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,” Jungck said.

BAE is a premier national security and data security company headquartered in London, England. According to its LinkedIn profile, it specializes in combat systems, aeronautics, avionics, surveillance, space electronics, communications, cyber, engineering and others.
