The Naval Post-Graduate School plans to buy tech that runs on open source infrastructure.
The Naval Post-Graduate School in Monterey, Calif., wants to acquire a bunch of anti-terrorist games that can run on a variety of gadgets, including computers and iThings to support -- I’m not making this up -- its Combatting Terrorism Fellowship program.
Types of games NPS is looking for include:
- Terrorist ideologies and counter-ideology strategies
- Terrorist financing and counter-finance
- Insurgency mobilization and counter-mobilization
- Special Operations and counterterrorism military operations
NPS said that while it would consider commercial games, it “prefers games that can run on free and open source infrastructure.” No browser plug-ins or Java applets, please.
