Halsey Group X-Ray scholars examine how the Navy should be structured to (a) survive an unexpected change in warfare or enduring warfare imbalance, and (b) rapidly adapt to defeat the enemy.
Working with experenced faculty, students will learn and use a mix of military operations analysis and war gaming, game theory, simulation, and case studies.
We rely on military and civilian student experience and to maintain our relevance to the fleet and warfighters in the field. We also talk directly with the Warfighters staffs and the intelligence community to stay current on the most critical issues.
During the academic year we conduct in-depth research and analysis of specific, real-world, tactical and operational warfighting issues within a specific theater-level scenario. Group members spend one full trimester focused specifically on the development of operational concepts for joint operations, concentrating heavily on war gaming as the baseline analytical technique.
The Halsey Group X-Ray project findings provide a firm basis for operational planning and joint force organization at the theater level and are briefed directly to senior leaders in the Navy, Operational Commanders and their staffs.
