CAX methodology in addition with war gaming and experimentation can be used for connecting present with future through simulation models that are used for representing scenarios. By this connection between past and present we have the chance to develop a useful tool for training military and academia personnel based, assist research, and provide a basis for operational planners to study the past in order to optimize the future operations.
Strategy and tactics of previous ages can be also adapted easier by the users of the methodology and broaden their strategic thinking horizons in a way that they are going to use more their fantasy and fulfil the needs of planning and executing an operation in an “unexpected” way.
The innovative element of the method is the “what if” scenarios that are a part of every project. By changing some parameters of the real events, the out come may be different. Estimations that can be based on “what ifs”, produce alternative solutions to handle specific situations and manage results of activities. Events that we know the outcomes, can be handled and managed in various ways. This methodology offers the capability of presenting not only how the outcome of the event were exploited by real “users”, but what should have happened if the exploitation of the major event was different.
MSETT has three major projects on the run, the naval battle of Navarinon (July 1827), the Gallipoli Campaign (1915) and the Invasion of Normandy (1944). All these historical events have their own significant value and there are many agencies worldwide willing to participate in the above mentioned events.
For every single project, a set of experts will prepare, organize and produce it based on the same methodology. Military, academia, simulation experts, Mass Media and Analysts are in their way to reveal history’s hidden secrets through msett’s methodology for historical events operational gaming.
Looking forward to have all our friends assisting these really unique projects.
