From its historic beginnings with the establishment of the Naval War College in 1881, the U.S. Navy"s wargaming capability has evolved with emerging technologies, tactics, techniques, and procedures. With the introduction of virtual world technologies, wargaming begins a new era in the"art of the possible."Team Sonalysts offers our proposed concept for"Simulated Wargaming"(SimWars) to provide the next generation of naval wargaming capability. Using a layered, measured, scalable, and dynamic enterprise Service-Oriented High Level Architecture (SOHLA) framework, we propose to develop the SimWars concept, design, and architecture. We will leverage innovation by assessing the latest commercial and military technologies, models, and simulations for mashup integration into SimWars. A trade space analysis will be provided with a life-cycle support plan, roadmap for growth and portability, and implementation recommendations. If invited to the Option period, Team Sonalysts will further demonstrate the architecture with a Proof-of-Concept using a client-server topology and provide recommendations for network implementation of the Phase II prototype. SimWars will set the new standard for wargaming with a more convenient, effective, and efficient venue that will empower U.S. Navy commands with maximum flexibility and control over wargaming scenarios for optimum results with greater participation and value.
