New Delhi: The Defence Research Development Organisation or DRDO on Monday handed over to the Navy a new-generation war-gaming software, aimed at creating an environment that would enable the Maritime Warfare Centres to train using the latest technological and computing tools, the Defence Ministry said.

The software has been developed by the Institute for Systems Studies and Analysis (ISSA) in Delhi, a premier DRDO laboratory, in collaboration with the MWC, Visakhapatnam to meet the contemporary operational and tactical level war-gaming requirement of the Indian Navy, a statement issued by the ministry said.

The wargaming software was handed over by DRDO to Vice Admiral G Ashok Kumar, the vice chief of the Naval staff.

“The key focus has been to create a wargaming environment, which enables the Maritime Warfare Centres (MWCs) to train using the latest technological and computing tools,” the statement said
