Analysis of Asymmetric Threats

The theater of war is not only a place where war operations take place. It also covers the civilians who live there. The military must keep them in mind while conducting operations, trying to make sure that civilians do not suffer. The Athena project being carried out as a result of a competition launched by the European Defence Agency (EDA) aims to support allied forces as part of what are called asymmetric operations.

“Asymmetric operations are defined in various ways by war doctrines,” says the project manager, Mariusz Chmielewski. “We are mainly concerned about the fact that these are operations in which the army comes into contact with an unknown opponent, for example, guerrillas, terrorists, or the local population.”

The Athena project is designed to build a range of simulation models to solve problems newly identified by commanders. This involves a wide array of what are called civilian-military operations.

As part of the Athena project a special environment is being created in which conventional military simulators will be transmitting information on the battling sides. Also simulated will be interactions stemming from possible impacts by the population living within the theater of war. Based on this information, it will be possible to avoid threats such as booby traps, suicide bombers, and sniper fire.
