MASA puts CBRN Training to the SWORD
This year we showcased our new CBRN module at I/ITSEC 2018. Many of you came to see our demos on our booth!
An enemy force takes over a territory near Brazil’s border with Argentina. The countries unite, forming the Guarani Combined Brigade to fight and resolve the conflict. The scenario, a simulated exercise of Operation Guarani, brought together 146 Brazilian and Argentine service members.
Participants use the MASA COMBATER system, which simulates interactions based on information provided prior to the game—for instance, maps of the territory—and during the game.

The simulation center at Bourg-Léopold was testing the brand new CST (Command and Staff Trainer) software during the last week of May. This tool allows companies and battalions to train in a virtual environment. The Liberation/Line Battalion (Bvr / 5Li) subjected the system to a first practical examination.
France has reason to cheer: for soldiers of the Belgian army, the preparation phase for operational engagement has just become French, at least in part. This phase involves command exercises at company and brigade level, and to carry them out the Land Forces component has chosen SWORD, a constructive simulation software package, designed and produced by MASA Group, an SME based in Paris.
Constructive systems for use as command and staff trainers are not new, but adding supporting technologies and the ability to integrate them with the virtual domain are increasing their functionnlity and usefulness.
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.
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.
