As the strategic and operational hub within the French Armed Forces, the CPCO organises every year brainstorming workshops, in the shape of strategic games simulating conflict situations. The attendees include the ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, several poles of the French Armed Forces, and sometimes international civil organisations too.
To promote these strategic workshops' drive for innovation and digitisation, which have been played out as board games up until now, the Innovation Defence Lab has selected Crimson Sandbox. The solution has been adapted to its planning purpose and to ensure an optimised end-user experience.
Crimson Sandbox was used successfully during the "2020 Global Games" held under the high patronage of the Chief of Defence (CHOD). Besides the screening of the Concept of Operations (CONOPS) and the execution of strategic scenarios, the solution has resulted in greater interactivity between players, despite their remote access in the difficult context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
