Australian Defence College

Wargaming & Simulation Centre


What We Do

The Australian Defence College Wargaming & Simulation Centre (ADC WSC) provides simulation & wargaming services and advice across the ADC.

Our Mission:
To provide excellence in simulation to support joint individual education and training (E&T) across ADC Learning Centres, and selected Defence customers, where it can achieve best effect by enhancing capabilities, reducing risks and saving resources.

Our Vision:
To exploit new technologies to improve learning outcomes through the use of Virtual and Augmented Reality products and associated game software.

The ADC WSC supports the Defence Education and Training Authority (DELTA) strategically through support to Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) across the ADC and employs immersive technologies to enhance learning and improved access to training – wherever the learner is.


Our Plan & Guide

The current ADC Simulation Guide and Plan 2016-2019 support the realisation of the ADC Simulation Vision. The Guide provides a set of strategic goals/objectives and a development process that assists Learning Centres develop simulation opportunities.


Education and Training Solutions

Services delivered by the Centre or Projects on the Plan are diverse and fall into the following E&T application areas:



Who We Engage

To provide innovative training solutions through the use of simulation and ensure best practice the Centre engages widely with Defence, academic institutions and the simulation industry. Related research is undertaken through engagement with the University of Newcastle (UoN). The Centre has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the UoN to collaborate on research into the use of virtual simulation to support E&T.
