On July 1, 2020, the U.S. Army Mad Scientist Initiative, Georgetown University, Center for Security Studies, and the Center for Advanced Red Teaming (CART), University at Albany, State University of New York, executed a realistic wargaming exercise that highlighted a natural disaster in the Philippines in 2027. The event explored the challenges, considerations, and opportunities that government and military leaders need to be cognizant of in their decision making in an environment in which information has been weaponized by the adversaries.
In this activity, we will focus on the DIME and roles of responsible agencies in national crisis management.
