Michael Ottenberg, Booz Allen Hamilton, is an analyst in support of the OSD CAPE Simulation and Analysis Center Wargame Team where he designs and executes tactical, operational, and strategic wargames for analytic purposes. He also chairs the Military Operations Research Society Wargame Community of Practice. Mr. Ottenberg is the analyst lead for the use of Standard Wargame Integration and Facilitation Tool (SWIFT) within OSD CAPE.
The Standard Wargame Integration Facilitation Toolkit (SWIFT), an Office of the Secretary of Defense, Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation (OSD CAPE) product, provides a computer environment that supports Department of Defense (DoD) wargaming. SWIFT complements, but does not substitute for good wargaming practices.
