COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Space Training and Readiness Command (STARCOM) will conduct the sixteenth Schriever Wargame at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama starting March 20, 2023.
The Schriever Wargame scenario, set in the year 2033, will explore critical space issues and investigate the integration activities of multiple agencies associated with space systems and services within a multi-domain environment. Schriever Wargame 2023 (SW 23) will include international partners from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
