In Virtual Borders, players test out different deployments of existing assets for border security. Various scenarios have been/can be created which gives the players opportunities to test out various strategies for securing the border.
BreakAway developed Virtual Borders in partnership with the United States Customs and Border Patrol to be an Operational planning and experimental too for the Secure Border Initiative. SBI staff would use Virtual Borders to test, validate and visualize operational plans, with an emphasis on the testing of different deployments of existing assets, and experimentation with proposed assets and sensor systems. The intention of Virtual Borders is to allow the creation of scenarios where red forces follow preset patterns with pre-scripted reaction to user actions or are controlled by Department of Homeland Security personnel acting as opposing forces.
