The War College was a Colonial Fleet military educational institute that likely taught its officers many tactics and other subjects pertaining to military logistics in battle.
One technique from War College was the use of electric pulse generators to create an EMP burst as a means of fending off the Cylons and incapacitating any warheads. The pulse mimics a nuclear detonation and blinds the Cylon DRADIS, making the attack appear successful. In computer simulations in War College, the Cylons never fell for the trick however.
- In real life, most "War Colleges" teach experienced, high-ranking military officers. For example, the U.S. Army War College's average age of students is 45 years and the typical rank is lieutenant colonel.
