Elusive Victory

Elusive Victory is a stability operations game developed by Decisive-Point and researchers from Park University as part of a U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research Phase I Small Business and Technology Transfer (STTR) program.

The U.S. Army’s release of FM 3-07, Stability Operations, provided our forces with a methodology that addresses all elements of post-conflict operations. One of the major implications of this manual is that military power in many cases becomes the smallest and least significant element in winning the peace. Even though we aggressively educate and train our military personnel, they seldom have an opportunity to practice applying their knowledge of stability operations until they enter their area of operation in Iraq or Afghanistan. Elusive Victory enables our military leaders and teams to deliberately practice the unique cognitive and team skills associated with the conduct of stability operations.
