Air Force Commissions 'Wargame Maker'


The software, called WarCon, is being developed under a $750,000 contract with the Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama

WarCon is a visual authoring environment that moves away from the traditional text-based programming interface. It contains an authoring assistant, which provides help and guidance to the game's creator. Games built using WarCon will feature a consistent look and feel, so students can focus on the substance of each game and scenario they encounter, rather than on the mechanics of how they interact with the game.

Richard Stottler, president of Stottler Henke said, "War games are a vital component in military education today, so having the means to develop them rapidly and consistently is critical to our armed forces' preparedness."
