Looking For Volunteers to test ITDG
« on: February 02, 2017, 06:14:36 PM »
The Marine Corps Association is about to go live with the 'Interactive Tactical Decision Game' (ITDG) software.

This will give you an idea of what a TDG is:

This will give you an idea of how an infantry battalion is using it:

What I would like to do is try to identify glitches with the ITDG when it goes live.

Is anyone game to do interactive tactical decision games?

Yes.

Is this government-owned software?

James, it is government-owned, ONR developed it.

Check out the article that I linked titled 'Decision Time' it gives S/A on what a battalion at Lejeune is doing with it.

The Gazette just started doing TDGs again last July....very good timing.

I talked to the ONR guy, if you guys want to get involved, he's good to go with it.
