BAE Systems won a contract to develop the prototype design of a new Wargaming Center for the U.S. Marine Corps, and PLEXSYS will collaborate on the project. The center will be built at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia.

BAE Systems will integrate advanced technologies into the prototype, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, game theory, multi-domain modeling and simulation, and predictive data analytics, which will provide greater metrics and training on many wargaming processes.

PLEXSYS will provide the Advanced Simulation Combat Operations Trainer (ASCOT 7). The ASCOT 7 system offers a dynamic, cutting-edge, scenario generation, and constructive forces tool that will generate a synthetic environment to stimulate other BAE systems at the Wargaming Center.
