The A2/AD Simulation Study is employing simulation tools to examine issues surrounding the impact of A2/AD environments on NATO future capability requirements. It employs an experimental and exercise approach to organise itself. A2/AD operations include a variety of military activities that can occur on land, in the air, at sea, and in space. The goal of an A2/AD environment is to deny an adversary the ability to enter an area or manoeuvre freely within the battlespace. Anti-access and area denial are different, but related concepts that offer a nuanced approach to deny the adversary the ability to operate within a contested zone.
