Abstract : "Computerised naval wargames are being used worldwide for operational planning, personnel training, operational development, and research and development. These wargames simulate surface, antisubmarine warfare, anti-air, and air warfare. Generally, the three forces participate in these wargames, namely blue (friendly), red (enemy), and neutral. The platforms of these forces, ie, ships, submarines, and aircraft along with their sensors and weapons are simulated under varying environmental conditions. These platforms are manoeuvered by the players with conflicting objectives, and they consequently detect, react, engage, and inflict or suffer damages. Efforts are made to model the performance of weapons and sensors. The outcome of the wargames has been analysed and used for the required purposes. "
