ARLINGTON, Va. The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) has awarded BAE Systems a contract worth approximately $19 million to develop a prototype design for a new state-of-the-art Wargaming Center to be built at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia.

BAE Systems will aim to integrate advanced technologies into the prototype, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, game theory, multi-domain modeling and simulation, and predictive data analytics, intended to provide greater metrics and training on many wargaming processes.
  
Since 2010, BAE Systems has supported the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory Wargaming Division with wargame planning, preparation, execution, and assessment. BAE Systems is positioned to support further wargaming processes and identify ways for the Marines to benefit from new technologies to enhance capabilities.
 
BAE Systems is one of three primes selected for the 18-month cloud modeling and simulation phase. BAE Systems formed a team of industry experts with cutting-edge technology offerings and predictive analytics-based wargaming solutions that automate planning, execution, and post-game analytics.
