The Bangladesh Army is deeply involved with civil emergencies and disaster relief programs. Using MASA’s SWORD software and expertise, the Army was able to lead a week-long earthquake relief simulation, involving 24 organizations.
In 2015, MASA signed its first contract with the Army Training and Doctrine Command (ARTDOC) of the Bangladesh Army to provide them with a complete and customizable training solution. Three years later, after successful delivery of the initial contract, ARTDOC has signed a new contract with MASA for the company to provide the Army with five years’ worth of training opportunities.
22 November 2018, Paris, France: MASA Group exhibited at I/ITSEC in Orlando, USA, from 26 – 30 November 2018. Leaders in constructive simulation and AI-based simulation technology for training military forces, MASA will be showcasing the latest edition of its flagship product, SWORD. The latest iteration of SWORD, version 6.12, has been showcased on MASA’s booth 2459.
21 Décembre 2018, Paris, France : MASA Group et Deev Interaction ont obtenu un brevet de l’Institut national de la propriété industrielle (INPI) pour leur invention d’un nouveau procédé sélection des modes d’interaction avec des images et des vidéos. Ce procédé, appelé « la tâche d’encre », permet aux utilisateurs de passer aisément d’un mode d’interaction directe à un mode d’interaction indirecte avec un contenu graphique tel qu’une carte. Ce procédé facilite l’interaction des utilisateurs avec les images et conséquemment réduit les risques d’erreur.

The Brazilian Army’s Land Operations Command (COTER) used the COMBATERconstructive simulation system in an exercise for the Army Command andHeadquarter Staff School’s (ECEME) first-year Command and General Staff Course(CCEM) during September 2018. This was the first time COMBATER has been used onthe CCEM course.
3 September 2018, Paris, France: MASA Group’s next-generation complete wargame solution, SWORD, has been successfully personalized by the Belgian Army within the record time of three months. The Belgian Army had selected SWORD in February, after an intensive procedure, as their constructive simulation solution.
SWORD has been deployed in the simulation center at one of the biggest Belgian Army sites in Leopoldsburg in the northeastern province of Limburg. It has been used for command post training at Company and Battalion level and is able to work alongside with Virtual Battlespace 3, a comprehensive desktop training package and simulation host based on commercial video game technology. An integrated radio communication application is used during the exercises and the recorded communications can be replayed during after action review.
July 16 2018, Paris, France: Parsons Corporation (Parsons), an engineering, construction, technical and professional services firm is a leader in diverse markets, focusing on infrastructure, industry, and construction at federal, regional, and local level, has purchased a number of SWORD licenses for use in operations research and weapon platforms for evaluation purposes.
Parsons is involved in research and development of mission-critical, next-generation technologies in the fields of engineering, integration, and simulation. The simulation is used to study the behavior of complex systems and solve operations research questions. One of the reasons Parsons chose MASA’s SWORD software is its ability to simulate complex scenarios without human interaction. Ease of use and the open architecture were other important selection criteria.
