Army Develops Game-Based Test System for Military Gear, Operation Concepts

The U.S. Army has announced plans to roll out a gaming system for soldiers to virtually test future mission equipment and procedures.

Operation Overmatch is being developed by the Army’s Software Engineering Directorate and Capabilities Integration Center, the service branch said Wednesday.

Army Lt. Col. Brian Vogt said the branch gathered input from industry and academia to develop the game-based test system.

Vogt added that soldiers can use the gaming technology to generate ideas on military concepts.

The Operation Overmatch platform is part of the Army’s Early Synthetic Prototyping program that offers multiple tools designed to help warfighters design and assess emerging technology through a game.
