Raytheon developing automated tool for wargames
The United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has awarded Raytheon Company a contract to develop an automated tool that assesses the effectiveness of using missiles and interceptors (kinetic) and cyber and electronic warfare (non-kinetic) weapons in wargames. The system automatically teaches participants which weapons to use in every possible scenario, ultimately better preparing warfighters to succeed. The Raytheon Coordinated Cyber/Electronic Warfare Integrated Fires program, or CCEWIF, uses analytics to assess the probabilities of success within a wargame scenario, using a mix of kinetic and non-kinetic options. Raytheon will deliver an initial CCEWIF wargame tool by early 2018. CCEWIF ingests real-world data about threats and kinetic and non-kinetic effects to generate realistic simulations. Raytheon’s mathematical foundation then provides probabilities of success, predicted battle damage to the target and confidence values for those predictions.
