Report: U.S. Military Adopts Social Media Simulation Platform

The U.S. military uses a commercial simulation tool in efforts to train intelligence analysts on how to sort through social media feeds and online news, Nextgov reported Tuesday.

The Social Media Replication Toolkit System was developed by Cubic and is being integrated into military training programs to help intelligence units manage the social media aspects of potential future conflict, the report noted.

The system is designed to generate anonymous internet posts that will compose a social-media traffic simulation and add information to the simulation.

Michal Simek, a Cubic senior program director, told Nextgov the tool works to collect identified real tweets and news stories within a specific region and remove data that may identify the person who posted them.
