BAE Systems has been selected as prime contractor for the remainder of the second phase of the U.S. Marine Corps wargaming center competition to develop and integrate advanced solutions to further enhance mission capabilities. As the single prime contractor for Phase 2, it is expected that we will also be awarded the Phase 3 contract, which will be negotiated in late 2022.
The U.S. Marine Corps selected BAE Systems to serve as the prime contractor for its second phase of developing and integrating a new, digitally advanced Wargaming and Analysis Center at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia. BAE Systems, along with its teammates, is continuing to build the state-of-the-art center to help the Marine Corps better visualize and simulate a wide range of operating environments.
BAE Systems’ prototype, called Pioneer, is a system of systems that enables wargame operations across multiple domains, including land, air, sea, space, and cyber. Pioneer utilizes cutting edge, explainable artificial intelligence (AI) based on linguistic geometry, machine learning, and predictive analytics. It delivers a truly immersive environment with critical verified, validated, and accredited analytics to provide the Marines with a competitive and information advantage.
“We are thrilled to refine our prototype design leveraging the innovative technologies of our team to ensure the Marine Corps can fulfill its wargaming missions,” said Gene Hodges, Director of U.S. Marine Corps Programs at BAE Systems. “With the integration of Stilman’s LG-RAID application, an AI centerpiece that uses Linguistics Geometry, our solution is ushering in the next-gen approach to wargaming.”
Cole Engineering Services Inc, a prime on Phase 2 of the competition, will join the BAE Systems team. Additionally, BAE Systems partnered with several other industry experts to offer breakthrough technology and predictive analytics-based wargaming solutions that automate planning, execution, and post-game analytics. Our partners include Alex-Alternative Experts, Bohemia Interactive, CAE USA, CESI, Covan Group, NetSimCo, PLEXSYS, Scalable Networks, Stilman Advanced Strategies, Stucan Solutions, and 4C North America.
