U.S. and allied forces staging space warfare games in Nevada
Advertisements [?]
LAS VEGAS, Nev., February 7

Military and homeland security officials began a week of space warfare games Saturday involving representatives from 20 US agencies and three allied countries.

About 250 military and civilian experts from the United States, Great Britain, Canada and Australia are taking part in the Schriever Three exercises through February 11th. Details are classified.

Air Force Brigadier General Dan Darnell calls it a tabletop test involving military, homeland, transportation, intelligence and strategic command decision-makers.

The Air Force says the games pit mock friendly and enemy forces against each other in scenarios designed to test command and control of military space systems. There won't be any aircraft flights and nothing visible outside the base.
