The Massive Multiplayer Online War Game Leveraging the Internet (MMOWGLI) is a Web-based idea-exploration game that encourages innovative thinking. MMOWGLI is designed to support large number of distributed global players working together on idea generation and action planning, with an eye towards surfacing innovative outlier strategies.
MMOWGLI project capabilities were produced with baseline support by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) which chartered and sponsored MMOWGLI platform development. This open-source Web-based software is developed at NPS and currently operates on the nps.edu infrastructure, supporting any user’s Web browser.
On behalf of the Director of Disruptive Technology (DDT), funding is provided for the Naval Postgraduate School, working as part of a team (team MMOWGLI) with personnel from NSWC Carderock and SPAWAR Charleston, working in conjunction with the DDT and the staff of the CNO Strategic Studies Group (SSG), to advance the objectives of the DDT, while simultaneously advancing the interests of the SSG, using the MMOWGLI collaborative online game platform, followed by an in-person workshop.
