The workshop was attended by a select group of current and former senior policy, military and diplomatic officials, as well as academics and strategists from Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and Japan. The group engaged in three consecutive scenario exercises designed to game plausible futures for the viability of SSBNs, as well as crisis stability dynamics and nuclear deterrence in the Indo-Pacific. In particular, the exercises modelled investment choices faced by major powers, China and the US, regarding new technologies and maritime capabilities out to 2040, and simulated decision-making in hypothetical regional crisis situations. The overall objectives were to draw insights about maintaining strategic stability and effective nuclear deterrence in the region
