Militaries around the world are fully aware of the great importance of training in order to be able to better confront real­-world situations. However, it is becoming more difficult to conduct training due to cuts in military budgets thus making armies worldwide reconsider the amount of training they can provide their leaders with, and the best tools to enable optimized training.

Thanks to virtual and constructive simulations, military leaders no longer need to make compensations because they can use these technologies to conduct cost-­effective and highly realistic training. MASA offers a large range of use cases to fit the requirements of any military.

Defense use cases covered by MASA include:Masa-Defense-small

  • Training Centers: SWORD is ideally suited for large­-scale events, such as Joint or Coalition Task Force exercises.
  • C2 Simulation & Stimulation (such as Course of Action Analysis): whether integrated with a C2 system or stand-­alone, SWORD provides an environment to analyze courses of action faster than real­-time.
  • Self­-Training: With SWORD, trainees can be immersed in modern battle environments to hone their tactics, techniques, and procedures.
  • Doctrine & Equipment Analysis: SWORD allows centers of excellence to set up and test new architectures (units, equipment, etc.), orders of battle, or doctrines in various conditions to synchronize new operational capabilities to combat elusive and adaptive adversaries.
  • Virtual simulations for training purposes: MASA’behavior modeling middleware can be integrated in any existing simulation for improved and more credible training.

  • Within the SCIPIO project, SWORD has been deployed and used operationally in the Command Post Training Center of the French Army since 2006. In 2012, a new version, enhancing the capability of the system to model urban warfare, was delivered.
  • SWORD is also deployed in a similar manner at the CEISIM (Centre d’Expertise de l’Info-valorisation et de la SIMulation) within the STAT (Section Technique de l’Armée de Terre), as well as in the French Army’s “Battlelab” (CATOD – Centre d’Analyse Technico-Opérationnel de la Défense) as a simulation tool for analysis purposes.
  • Case studies: Link with a C4ISR

  • SWORD is used for training for the Armed Forces
  • Used for a 5-­country brigade­-level joint exercise (SUMAN Warrior)
  • Integration into a C2 system

  • SWORD is the main driver of CETAC, the Digitized Tactical Training Center. Deployed to train personnel in both Defense and Disaster/Emergency preparedness.
  • Management purposes ­

amper-logo-masaThales Programas

  • SWORD has been selected to support Thales Programas’ most recent offering of a C2 system embedding a low overhead battle command constructive simulation. This new offering enables Amper to add Course of Action Analysis (and embedded training) to the list of features already provided by its C2 systems and products. This new capability helps to fill the bi­directional interoperability gap between operational systems and simulation capabilities.


  • KMW integrates MASA’s artificial intelligence technology to enhance the capacities of its existing simulations, from Tank driving simulators to Virtual synthetic environments.
