Scalable Network Technologies, Inc. (SNT) announced that the company has developed a software capability that enables integration of realistic cyber warfare communication effects into a Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) environment.
As reported on PR USA Net, the resulting advanced system provides more realistic training and improved analysis capabilities to counter the increasing vulnerability of military systems to computer network attacks (CNA).The software, a new synthetic cyber warfare test bed is capable of realistically representing a network-centric battlespace under cyber attack for testing and training applications.
“Although current generation computer-based battlefield simulations deliver experiential realism in force positioning, troop movement, supply routing, enemy force detection/engagement, and damage calculation – next generation net-centric systems open up a new domain of cyber vulnerability that today’s war gaming systems don’t encompass. Without the inclusion of cyber warfare communications effects, battlefield modeling and simulation can be overly optimistic, risking and/or perpetuating negative training. By integrating high fidelity communication models that incorporate network attack/defense, as well as performance aberrations caused by various environmental factors – the ability to analyze and train for the impact of cyber warfare on mission outcome is dramatically improved.”
