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.
Masa Group and Pitch Technologies, two specialists in COTS simulation products, join forces to launch an integrated solution for constructive training. It is based on their respective products, the MASA Group SWORD and Pitch Technologies´ Pitch Talk, Pitch Recorder and Pitch pRTI. This integrated solution, offers users, a constructive simulation, a communications simulation with voice and text, as well as a fully synchronized after action review capability.
MASA, a leading designer of artificial intelligence training solutions, will be showcasing its products and featuring in several demonstrations as Eurosatory returns to Paris this June.
11 June 2018, Paris, France: MASA will be exhibiting at Eurosatory from 11 – 15 June 2018 in Paris, France. World leaders in simulation software and integrated artificial intelligence (AI), MASA will be demonstrating its premier product, SWORD, on its booth throughout the week. SWORD provides military land forces with computer-based, detailed and realistic scenario training. SWORD is already in use with more than 17 organizations around the world and integrates seamlessly with a variety of equipment and software, based upon customer requirements.
MASA Group is very proud to announce that, after an intensive selection procedure, the Belgian Army has selected MASA SWORD as their Constructive Simulation Solution.
MASA SWORD will be deployed in the simulation centre at one of the biggest Belgian Army site in Leopoldsburg in the northeastern province of Limburg.
November 29, 2017, Orlando, Florida: After four successful years of training command staff through COMBATER, a simulation system powered by MASA SWORD, the Brazilian Army has chosen to renew its software maintenance contract with MASA. The Army has also decided to extend the deployment of licenses chosen to improve its simulation training offering for its officers.
MASA and XVR Simulation (XVR) are ready to collaborate and benefit from each other’s expertise in order to further develop their own products and markets.
Paris, Delft, 27 November 2017 – The strategic relationship between MASA Group (“MASA”), a leading developer of Artificial Intelligence-based simulation software, and XVR Simulation B.V (“XVR”), a global leader in virtual reality training software, will be reinforced this month following the signing of both a partnership and a reseller agreement. These agreements will confirm the partnership between the two companies to develop and sell their products (MASA SWORD & XVR Platform) in their respective domains.
MASA returns to I/ITSEC at Florida’s Orange County Convention Center on 27 November 2017 to demonstrate the latest developments to its SWORD wargaming solution, and the integration of MASA’s updated Direct AI into the system.
27 November 2017, Paris, France: Since first designing SWORD in 2001, an automated simulation training solution for army personnel, from brigade to division level, MASA has taken the system from strength to strength, continuing to develop it in line with customer requests and needs.
