After more than five years of successul operations in Brazil, Colombia and Peru, MASA Group has opened a subsidiary company in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, consolidating its position in South America and increasing its customer outreach.
MASA and Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) have entered a product sales and technical cooperation agreement to further develop MASA SWORD for the North American market.
17 May 2017, Paris, France: The strategic relationship between MASA Group, a leading developer of Artificial Intelligence-based simulation software, and Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim), a global developer of simulation and training software, will be reinforced this month following the signing of a reseller agreement. This agreement will confirm BISim as the official reseller of MASA SWORD in North America.
With many global military powers already using both SWORD and BISim’s Virtual Battlespace 3 (VBS3), the companies identified an opportunity to bring their complementary technologies together. The collaboration will enable MASA to respond to growing requirements for cost-effective simulated training, broaden its international reach and provide a truly comprehensive simulation package for command staff training.
The success of MASA’s relationship with Brazil’s Army providing wargame simulations over the last five years has led to MASA opening an in-country office. Now the company is reaching out to civil defence units to help them train for civil emergencies and natural disasters.
Paris, 15 May 2017: After more than five years of successful operations in Brazil, Colombia and Peru, MASA Group has opened a subsidiary company in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, consolidating its position in South America and increasing its customer outreach.
The new company, MASA do Brasil, which is fully operational, will employ local resources to closely support customers in the region, most of all the Brazilian Army, and to further develop business in the defense and public safety markets.
During ITEC, on Wednesday, May 17th, Newfel Messouci (Software Engineer at MASA Group) will be presenting a 30min conference :
Designing Realistic Behaviours for a Military Training Simulation
Simulation is a one of the main tools for armies’ training; it is used to confront trainees to complex situations that would be expensive and potentially dangerous to do in the real world. In this context the modeling of realistic automated forces becomes essential. This talk will focus on the behavior modeling process, from the analysis of the operational requirements and the military doctrine to the actual implementation and finally the test and validation process. Attendees will learn what are the main guidelines to build a maintainable library of behaviors that are both perceived and measured as realistic. MASA SWORD, a simulation for command post training used by many armies throughout the world will serve as an illustration for this presentation.
Where : Ahoy Convention Center, Theater 1
When : Wednesday, May 17th at 4.00pm

French-based artificial intelligence-based, modelling and simulation provider, MASA Group has delivered a completely customised version of its wargame with automated forces, SWORD, to the Bangladesh Army Training and Doctrine Command (ARTDOC), in order to equip its Computerised War-Game Centre (CWGC). The simulation has been adapted to reflect specific requirements including the Army’s doctrine, equipment and supplies as well as its ooperational terrain.
The ARTDOC has chosen to employ SWORD for command post training from the battalion to the division level. The software enables the Army to immerse its training audience in different types of military and civil emergency scenarios. SWORD can simulate and control tens of thousands of soldiers and units.
Following last year’s highly successful Operation Blended Warrior (OBW) that took place at the International / Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando, this year’s repeat exercise featured the MASA SWORD constructive simulation solution participation for the first time.
The first event was successfully demonstrated during I/ITSEC 2015 and included 31 industry and government participants that were networked across twenty-two booths on the exhibit floor. In addition to working through connectivity and interoperability issues, OBW 2015 raised awareness regarding standards, after-action review, and the impact of cyber warfare. This year’s event involved 50 industry, military and academic players with 90 different systems integrated over a distributed network.
