Today DRDO has delivered the Indian Navy a new-generation war-gaming software. The wargaming software was handed over by G Satheesh Reddy, Secretary, Department of Defence R&D and Chairman, DRDO, to Vice Admiral G Ashok Kumar, the vice chief of the Naval Staff, at the Institute for Systems Studies and Analysis (ISSA).
This software or videogame as we like to call it can simulate different environments virtually and let the soldiers combat in-game. By using this, officials of the Maritime Warfare Centres (MWCs) will be able to train the Navy by using the most advanced technologies and computing tools, said the Ministry of defence.
According to a statement circulated by the Ministry of defence. This videogame has been developed by the Institute for Systems Studies and Analysis (ISSA) in Delhi, a premier Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) laboratory, in association with the Maritime Warfare Centers, Visakhapatnam to meet the contemporary operational and tactical level wargaming requirement of the Indian Navy.
“The key focus has been to create a wargaming environment, which enables the Maritime Warfare Centres (MWCs) to train using the latest technologies and computing tools,” the statement said.
The software has versatile and user-friendly features and will create globally playable wargaming situations between various forces. It also facilitates actions that are to be handled between geographically-dispersed locations over a wide area network (WAN).
