A new version of the New Zealand Defence Force's MANA model has been recently released. To date MANA has been used in operations analysis modelling for all branches of defence. Examples of its use include army wargaming, maritime patrol experimentation, chemical and biological weapons dispersion modelling and command and control experimentation. This paper gives an overview of the new version of the model. Particular scenarios are used to illustrate key features of the model, and its utility for a wide range of operations analysis tasks.
