Release Number: 151201

12/9/2015 - 9 December 2015 -- PETERSON AFB, Colo. - Air Force Space Command will conduct the ninth Schriever Wargame at Schriever AFB, Colorado Springs, Colorado starting December 11, 2015.

The Schriever Wargame, set in the year 2025, will explore critical space issues and investigate the integration activities of multiple agencies associated with space systems and services.  Schriever Wargame 2015 will include international partners from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

The objectives of the Wargame will center on:  1) identifying ways to increase the resilience of space that includes our Intelligence Community, civil, commercial and Allied partners; 2) exploring how to provide optimized effects to the warfighter in support of coalition operations; and 3) examining how to apply future capabilities to protect the space enterprise in a multi-domain conflict.

The SW 15 scenario depicts a peer space and cyberspace competitor seeking to achieve strategic goals by exploiting those domains.  It will include a global scenario with the focus of effort towards the European Command (EUCOM) Area of Responsibility.  The scenario will also include a full spectrum of threats across diverse operating environments to challenge civilian and military leaders, planners and space system operators, as well as the capabilities they employ.
