The author considers the main trends in military gaming to be 1 An expanded scope in the types of military confrontations which are modeled. 2 An extension of our gaming techniques, primarily those involving computers, through the use of time sharing, multiagency participation, micromodeling, etc. 3 A move in the direction of true variable-resolution games involving detailed submodels operated through an executive routine. 4 Increased emphasis on performance-oriented rather than outcome-oriented analyses as gaming is used more as a research tool than as a training device. 5 An increase in standardization of data inputs and simulation programs. 6 A continuing concern, but no major efforts to introduce some of the nontechnical aspects of warfare into our models.
