Using the SWORD simulation system we have made part-time personnel savings of about 50% and significant savings in the amount of computer hardware need to support this activity.

The simplicity of constructing scenarios, its ability to integrate the GIS information and its rich graphical interface make it a very easy tool to work with, ensuring that the manpower and computer power required are kept to a minimum.

The flexibility of employment and evolution of SWORD effectively allows us to foresee its use in all types of operational preparation for command posts, but also in training specialist areas (Engineering, Intelligence, Logistics, or CBRN -Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear), the testing of future military doctrines, the preparation of operations, and for post-operation analysis and conclusions.
