BlueHalo has been awarded a contract by the US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) worth $80 million for the Directed Energy Modeling, Simulation, Analysis, and Wargaming (DEMSAW) program.
Under the DEMSAW contract, BlueHalo will provide its Wargaming as a Service Enterprise (WaaSE) as a solution to support the development and operation of a credible virtual range and a digital ecosystem for housing Modeling, Simulation, Analysis and Wargaming (MSA&W) tools as well as facilitating the transition of Directed Energy (DE) concepts and systems to the warfighter community.
BlueHalo’s WaaSE solution will provide a reliable capability that enables warfighters to envision future warfare scenarios and assess weapons impact on current and future threats. The DEMSAW contract will accelerate and improve the AFRL’s Directed Energy Directorate’s Wargaming and Simulation Branch (RDMW) Program through a disciplined systems engineering approach to develop a digital ecosystem that supports multi-domain, full-service, and end-to-end credible virtual range.
“It is exciting to build upon our Modeling Simulation Analysis & Wargaming expertise for the success of the DEMSAW program,” said James Batt, BlueHalo’s Chief Growth Officer. “Our WaaSE approach will provide the Air Force, and the warfighter community, with cost, capability, and operational advantages.”
“We are thrilled to offer AFRL RDMW a credible virtual range that seamlessly integrates an end-to-end system for higher fidelity products for the transition of directed energy,” said Jimmy Jenkins, BlueHalo Sector President. “BlueHalo’s improved digital ecosystem with automated processes, libraries, tools, models, and documentation will enhance productivity and quality.”
