Army using simulations to work out networking kinks ahead of Project Convergence 21 (Megan Eckstein, Defense News)

The U.S. Army is doing more work ahead of time to practice networking sensors and shooters together in a virtual environment ahead of Project Convergence 21, after finding that networking was harder than expected in last year’s iteration of the experimentation event.

Lt. Gen. James Richardson, the deputy commanding general of U.S. Army Futures Command, said every piece of technology that’s being used in Project Convergence 21, which starts Oct. 12, was tested in a modeling and simulation environment to make sure it works as an individual system, but it was also modeled and simulated as part of a network as well.
