Five ways synthetic environments can benefit the U.S. and NATO

Predicting an adversary’s intentions and operational aims has always been a thorny challenge, and contingency planning in this climate of uncertainty is no easy task.

As the U.S. and its allies grapple with increasingly unpredictable threats, greater reliance on simulation — and in particular synthetic environments — may offer a range of benefits.

Jennifer McArdle, head of research at Improbable U.S. Defense & National Security, teamed up with Lauren Speranza, director of the Transatlantic Defense and Security Program at the Center for European Policy Analysis, to detail the 5 ways synthetic environments could assist the U.S. and NATO:

  1. Enhance collective experimentation, planning and decision-making
  2. Transform training
  3. Strengthen interoperability across the alliance
  4. Test and investigate new technologies and technical concepts
  5. Better assess readiness across the force
