As funding for defence projects continues to fall, armies are increasingly looking to simulation software for economically viable training solutions. Juan-Pablo Torres, CEO of MASA Group, discusses how artificial intelligence-based computer programs can save forces time and money.
MASA Group’s market leading automated wargame solution, SWORD, now includes advanced logistics capabilities. The new features make it possible to train logistics commanders with cutting-edge simulation tools that were previously only available for the training of tactical command staff.
Training solutions have traditionally focused upon tactical scenarios, neglecting logistics command posts requirements. Recognizing this need, MASA Group (« MASA »), a leading developer of Artificial Intelligence-based simulation software for the defense, emergency management, and games-related markets, made the decision to develop advanced logistics models for its flagship product. The developments are integrated in the latest release of SWORD, which will be demonstrated at ITEC. As a result SWORD will be the very first solution to provide state-of-the-art simulation capabilities to train logistics command staff.
MASA SWORD was adopted by the ESDEGUE (Colombian Superior War College) last August to equip its training center for command staff. The smart simulation platform allows scenarios for both military and public safety decision-makers.
MASA Group (“MASA”), a leading developer of Artificial Intelligence-based simulation software for the defense, emergency management, and games-related markets, announces ESDEGUE’s first use of its constructive simulation SWORD to train crisis supervisors and decision-makers of a privately-held corporation.
MASA Group and Systematic have entered into a strategic partnership to further develop and demonstrate their integrated Simulation-Command and Control solution for the military and civil security markets
The strategic relationship between MASA Group, a leading developer of Artificial Intelligence-based simulation software, and Danish software systems integrator Systematic was reinforced this month following the signing of a partner agreement. This partnership, initiated through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 2011, follows a period of successful collaboration, including an 18 month project on behalf of the Danish MOD within the context of NATO’s Modelling & Simulation Group 085. The companies will continue to develop their synergies and respond to growing requirements for integrated Commercial-off-the-shelf (‘COTS’) Command and Control (‘C2’) solutions around the world.
Of the 17,000 candidates in the European Business Awards, MASA is the only company specializing in decisional Artificial Intelligence and intelligent simulations to be officially acknowledged as an EBA National Champion
An exclusive event hosted by the British Embassy in Paris was held at the end of last year to honor the 30 French companies named National Champions by the European Business Awards. As part of this distinguished cluster, MASA CEO Juan-Pablo Torres and New Markets & Sales Manager, Enrico Raue joined eminent guests from across France to celebrate reaching this unique status. During the reception, MASA was presented with an official certificate marking the company’s success.
Less than six months after the Brazilian Army selected MASA SWORD to provide training to its battalion, brigade and division level commanders COMBATER, powered by MASA SWORD, has been deployed in Rio Grande do Sul.
MASA Group announces that the Brazilian Army has carried out the first large-scale command staff training exercise at brigade level using COMBATER, powered by SWORD. MASA’s constructive simulation has been specifically adapted in such a short period of time for the unique demands of the Brazilian Army, resulting in the bespoke product named COMBATER. Developed in order to train command staff for the rigours of the operational environment, the system has been testedto train officers from the 6th Armored Infantry Brigade, the 8th Motorized Infantry Brigade and the 3rd Motorized Cavalry Brigade.
