About em2 MMOWGLI

To generate innovative ideas from a broad field of participants, Navy Warfare Development Command (NWDC), the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) are partnering to conduct a crowd-sourcing online war game on electromagnetic maneuver (em2).  The game, called em2 MMOWGLI, will be available in three one-week moves (phases), 24-hours a day:

Move 1: "Know the EM Environment: Understanding EM Energy"
Move 2: "Be Agile: C2 in the EM Environment"
Move 3: "Change Our Paradigm: Tactical Employment of EM Weapons"

Interested players can request to play at Before the game starts, provide your email for registration notification at After registration, the game can be played on any web browser. Each phase of the game will start with the partners posting ‘root' cards which pose questions on the topic for that phase. Players then post ‘idea cards' that other players can respond to by either building on, countering, redirecting, or calling for further expertise. Points are earned based on each idea card's influence and perceived value. Individuals contributing to particularly intriguing concepts are invited to collaborate on an "Action Plan" to move that idea forward. Published action plans are awarded further points by all players providing ratings and additional comments. Significant achievements will be recognized. In addition to the unclassified em2 MMOWGLI game, a blog on NWDC's Navy Center for Innovation classified website will allow military and government players with a .mil account to continue discussions in a secure environment.

Results of the game will be used to inform Navy innovation concept development and experimentation efforts.
