Coming up next

We are also happy to announce we will be opening up a pair of self-facilitated single-phase online exercises soon. These are part of the Black Sky Exercise Series.

The first is the Black Sky EMP Exercise which takes participants through the simulated impacts of an EMP attack by undetermined parties on both sides of the US.

The second exercise, Black Sky Cyber Exercise, is a worldwide, distributed cyber-attack on many systems and sectors. Participants can game out their plans and make adjustments as new information is made available to them through interactive media in the exercise. We welcomed participants from over 40 countries to play EARTH EX 20. These efforts will culminate in EARTH EX 21, which opens for play worldwide on 1 September and remains open through 31 October 2021. Our exercise is web-based, self-paced, and available to start and finish any time participants need.

This year's exercise is climate change-based and involves two climate-related disasters that participants have to figure out how to deal with the scenario updated interactive media. EARTH EX is perfect for play during Covid 19 as players found in 2020. Players can participate from remote locations using various video conference platforms and the EARTH EX platform, the Battle Rhythm Manager. Please join us in the annual exercise that many thousands of participants have played!
