This study examines the use of interactive wargaming and computer modeling and simulation in assessing the overall performance of system of systems (SoS) alternatives in conducting critical functions concerning to defeat the threat of Maritime Improvised Explosive Devices (MIED) in a U.S. port. The geographic area of concern is Puget Sound, principally Elliot Bay and Commencement Bay. The wargame involves an attack against the Seattle Passenger Ferry System and the Maritime Transportation System (MTS) using MIEDs. A unique element of this scenario was that it combined an interactive wargame, which required crisis management actions, planning and coordination, with a series of closed-form simulations. This highlighted both the necessary actions and considerations that must be taken by military and civilian leadership in order to adequately prepare for and counter MIEDs in U.S. Ports, and focused on side-by-side analysis’ of proposed solution alternatives were performed.
