The Army’s military gaming website has a new look with enhanced functionality.

The MilGaming online portal, which provides access to the Army’s Games for Training program, recently underwent an upgrade and now has the “look and feel of Web 2.0 features,” said Marco Conners, deputy of TCM – Gaming, which manages the Army’s gaming capabilities.

“The improvements are part of a regular update cycle that helps the Games for Training program stay relevant and add new technological features,” he said. “Improvements reduce the number of clicks required to get to the most-used items on the site.”

Accessible with a Common Access Card, the MilGaming portal provides news, training events, online instruction, technical support, expert forums and training scenarios. In addition, the website has links to products such as Virtual Battlespace 2, VBS2 Fires and Moral Combat.

The website also offers a biometrics and forensics simulation that allows soldiers to train on-site exploitation and then employ some of the newest technologies in intelligence gathering and personnel identification.

More than 31,500 registrants from the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and other organizations are currently using the website.
