Fulfilling a similar role to JOCASTS but at the operational level, CONTACT is a real-time constructive simulation system that confronts commanders with the complexities of conflict.
It is currently among the teaching tools deployed on the British Army's Captains' Warfare Course to exploit lessons learnt from previous operations and prepare personnel for future missions.
Already used to support the training of command and staff officers prior to deployment, the simulation allows individuals or small groups of users to trial courses of action in a fully-customisable environment.
CONTACT's simulated exercises and assessments provide instructors with the ability to pause, rewind and fast-forward the action to deliver instant feedback or encourage syndicate discussion.
