OPNET Awarded Second NETWARS Contract Extension

OPNET Technologies has been awarded the second of four possible contract extensions to continue to work on the U.S. Department of Defense's Network Warfare Simulation (NETWARS) program. NETWARS is a software application for analyzing defense-related network communications.

The NETWARS project is part of the DoD's vision for achieving information superiority by optimizing military communications in realistic warfighter scenarios. The objectives for the NETWARS software environment include simulating major theaters of war involving thousands of communications nodes, conducting communications burden analysis, contingency planning analysis, and evaluating emerging technologies in full Joint Task Force warfighting scenarios.

OPNET said that by enabling planners and architects to evaluate the performance impact of layering network-centric enterprise services (NCES) on top of the global information grid (GIG), the overall technology risk will be significantly mitigated.
