The Electromagnetic Maneuver (em2) MMOWGLI game is intended to support Navy professionals exploring how best to achieve tactical flexibility for the principles outlined in Electromagnetic Maneuver Massive Multiplayer Online War Game Leveraging the Internet - or em2 MMOWGLI-will broadly examine the concepts outlined in the CNO Jonathan Greenert's USNI Proceedings article, "Imminent Domain." Future conflicts will be won in a new arena, the electromagnetic spectrum and cyberspace--the Navy must merge and master those realms. These tactical/technical challenges present a complex set of problems affecting a broad range of fleet operations. We need to better understand the challenges and identify effective paths forward. Broad collaboration using MMOWGLI to conduct brainstorming of new ideas and generating action-plan alternatives is expected to be essential for charting the way ahead for this major Navy-wide initiative.
The Office of Naval Research (ONR) has sponsored a major project that has established the massive Multiplayer Online Wargame Leveraging the Internet (MMOWGLI) project. This open-source Web-based software is developed at NPS and operates on NPS infrastructure supporting any user's Web browser. MMOWGLI utilizes social networking technologies for rapid user-driven exploration of key questions through idea brainstorming, which then leads to focused action-plan generation. Multiple games have been run to perform innovative group analysis and collaboration on scenarios of interest to the navy and other sponsors. NPS uses multiple proven low-cost, open-standards, open-source capabilities in concert, anticipating even broader use by a proposed community of stakeholder sponsors.
