Part of Defense


The CNAS Defense Team uses wargaming to support and enhance its research into critical issues in national security. The Defense Team leverages over 40 years of wargaming experience to design games and simulations to explore topics as diverse as the future of the Gulf Region after the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal to Indian military strategy and operational concepts for deterring and defeating Chinese aggression.

In addition to wargame design, CNAS taps a broad network of subject-matter experts to derive innovative insights, and can leverage both qualitative and quantitative post-game analysis including computer modeling to ensure that these insights are robust.
