Shall We Play a Game?

Air Force Space Command will start the Schriever Wargame on Dec. 11 at Schriever AFB, Colo. The exercise—set in the year 2025— will explore space issues and “investigate the integration activities of multiple agencies associated with space systems and services,” according to a press release. The scenario will involve a peer space and cyberspace competitor attempting to exploit both those domains, and will include a global scenario with the focus on the European Command area of responsibility. Through the exercise, the command hopes to find ways to improve resilience of space, explore how to provide the best effects to the warfighter, and examine how to use future capabilities to protect the space enterprise in a multi-domain conflict. Troops from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom will also participate in the war game.
