The Army is rolling out a gaming system, Operation Overmatch, that Soldiers can use to test virtual versions of gear and operation concepts that could be implemented in the future. Operation Overmatch is part of the Early Synthetic Prototyping program. The ESP process is a set of tools that enable Soldiers to inform technology development and acquisition decisions by designing and assessing emerging technologies in a game environment. Operation Overmatch is still in the test phase, and the first 100 participants were hand-selected. The beta test will open in October and there will be a big push to get Soldiers from across the Army to sign up. Players will be added as development continues.
