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.
The Australian Government’s Defence Science and Technology Group (DST) has brought two MASA SWORD licences for use within its Land Capability Branch of the Joint Operations and Analysis Division.
The division develops ‘computational tools and techniques for use by multidisciplinary teams involved in land force analysis’.
‘We draw on strong collaboration with our clients, industry, academia and international d.efence partners to maintain a world-class military experimentation capability. Australia’s DST Group [has invested] in MASA SWORD to simulate complex operational research scenarios,’ the division said on its website.
Each year, Military Training International reviews the global simulation and training community, assesses their contributions and promotes companies that allow better individual and group training, lower direct and indirect costs, and the ability to bring joint and international partners together.
MASA Group is very proud to have been recognized as one of the Top Simulation & Training Companies from 2016!
In this special edition focused on Eurosatory 2016, ESD Spotlight presents the new features of SWORD that will be demonstrated at the exhibition.
