New Zealand Army trials MASA SWORD
New Zealand is the first Commonwealth country to use MASA SWORD, exclusively demonstrated during a large scale international training exercise
Armed Forces from five countries took part in the annual ‘SUMAN Warrior’ training exercise last month in New Zealand, using MASA’s flagship SWORD constructive simulation software for the first time.
Held at the Linton Military Camp at Palmerston North, on New Zealand’s North Island, SUMAN Warrior is a land-based tactical-level Command Post Exercise (CPX) which is carried out between the nations within the Commonwealth’s Five Power Defence Arrangements (FPDA) Singapore, United-Kingdom, Malaysia, Australia and New-Zealand (SUMAN).
After decades of in-house maintenance and development, the Brazilian Army decided a new COTS solution would provide significant benefits and ROI. The result is COMBATER, a constructive simulation system that is meeting their expectations. Lt Col Sergio Martins Rocha, Brazillian Army, tells the story.
South America, and Brazil in particular, is making major investments in training and simulation systems. This article investigates how Brazil is redefining its constructive training with the adoption of an innovative new training system.
