Navy Warfare Development Command

Wargaming at NWDC

Navy Warfare Development Command's Fleet 360 war game series and Strike Group 360 war game series engage Fleet Maritime Operations Centers and Carrier Strike Group Commanders and Staffs, respectively, with free thinking opposition forces played by NWDC experts to examine the latest tactics, techniques and procedures for combat at-sea. Additionally, through the Fleet Experimentation (FLEX) program, NWDC conducts war games (both seminar and system) using players and participants from across the operational and tactical levels of war (OLW, TLW) as a means of experimenting with new concepts and warfighting capabilities across the doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel, and facilities (DOTMLPF) spectrum.
