Abstract: The US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) "Terra" Wargame was conducted by the ARL Computational and Information Sciences Directorate, Network Science Division in December 2016. It helped to achieve a better understanding of how Army supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system and device security can be modeled and managed. Terra game players obtained first-hand experience in attacking and defending a live ("operational") SCADA system that was located in a testbed facility at the ARL Adelphi Laboratory Center, Maryland. In this report, we present an overview of the cyber-physical wargame events and provide a detailed record of the game events and team strategies.
