DARWARS DARWARS Ambush DARWARS is a research program intended to accelerate the development and deployment of military training systems. These are envisioned as low-cost, mobile, web-centric, simulation-based, “lightweight” systems designed to take advantage of the ubiquitous presence of the PC and of new technology, including multi-player games, virtual worlds, off-the-shelf PC simulations, intelligent agents, and on-line communities.

The scalable framework supports training for individuals, teams, or teams of teams (involving students at PCs interacting on a virtual battlefield).
