Anti-pirate MMO used by the US Navy

It is reported by Gamasutra that the US Navy is attempting to use an MMO to battle Somali sea pirates. The design document describes a simulation of three different stages on anti-piracy issue strategies, all equally important; namely the protection of sea lanes, the prevention of attacks at ships and, finally, the rescue of hostages.

More information on this very interesting project/serious game, which battles an existing problem can be found here.
