Abstract
Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California offered to develop a wargame for the Maritime Command Pacific (MARPAC) Operational Research Team (ORT) addressing Maritime Interdiction Operations, in particular Visit, Board, Search, and Seizure (VBSS) operations. The results provide input for the work of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Systems Analysis Study (SAS) 094 (Non-Lethal Weapons Concept Development). SAS 094 co-operates with NATO Defence Against Terrorism Non-Lethal Capabilities (DAT NLC) program on organizing a NATO Non-Lethal Technology Exercise (NNTEX) focused on evaluation of the employment of non-lethal capabilities (NLC) during VBSS operations. The wargame would provide alternative look on the problem. The students developed a table-top board game for VBSS operations. A secondary seminar wargame was conducted for the Force Protection (FP) part of the scenario rather than developing another board game.
