US Joint Forces Command plans to absorb the Joint Warfare System—a simulation tool that officials say was “born joint,” making it immensely appealing. The took had been the property of Pentagon’s Program Analysis and Evaluation Office. Command officials say that JWARS can simulate whole-theater, 90-day campaigns within a few hours and is capable of multiple simultaneous runs to capture statistical variations in war exercises. The program allows combatant commanders to analyze the results of battle campaigns, course of action and command and control decisions – all of which lead to reducing risk before deployment, according to Tony Cerri, who leads JFCOM experimentation engineering.
