French-based artificial intelligence-based, modelling and simulation provider, MASA Group has delivered a completely customised version of its wargame with automated forces, SWORD, to the Bangladesh Army Training and Doctrine Command (ARTDOC), in order to equip its Computerised War-Game Centre (CWGC). The simulation has been adapted to reflect specific requirements including the Army’s doctrine, equipment and supplies as well as its ooperational terrain.
The ARTDOC has chosen to employ SWORD for command post training from the battalion to the division level. The software enables the Army to immerse its training audience in different types of military and civil emergency scenarios. SWORD can simulate and control tens of thousands of soldiers and units.
The Australian Government’s Defence Science and Technology Group (DST) has brought two MASA SWORD licences for use within its Land Capability Branch of the Joint Operations and Analysis Division.
The division develops ‘computational tools and techniques for use by multidisciplinary teams involved in land force analysis’.
‘We draw on strong collaboration with our clients, industry, academia and international d.efence partners to maintain a world-class military experimentation capability. Australia’s DST Group [has invested] in MASA SWORD to simulate complex operational research scenarios,’ the division said on its website.
Held in Melbourne from September 26th-29th, the SimTecT 2016 is Asia Pacific’s premier simulation conference for industry, government and academia.
In addition to MASA SWORD being showcased at the exhibition on YTEK’s booth, SWORD capacities will also be highlighted in one of the conferences.
Lieutenant-Colonel Martinez, Director at the JANUS Simulation Center (France Army Tactical Training Centre, which has been using SWORD for years) will deliver a speach on Preparing tomorrow’s Army leaders for demanding operational situations, and the role played by advanced automated simulation in their training: « Preparing tomorrow’s Army Leaders for demanding and wide ranging operational situations within dynamic and streamlined training environments is made possible by a transformative enterprise wide solution application approach and a new breed of fit-for-purpose, cost efficient and interoperable COTS solutions underpinned by advanced Artificial Intelligence based simulation technology« .

What is Eurosatory ?
Eurosatory is the largest exhibition of Land and Air-Land Defence and Security in the world. It will take place in the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre from June 13th to 17th. Learn more about Eurosatory
Bangladesh became, in early 2015, the third Asia Pacific country to select MASA Group’s world leading wargame solution with automated forces, SWORD. Less than 13 months after the initial contract signature, MASA has delivered a completely customized constructive simulation training solution to fulfil the needs of the Bangladesh Army Training and Doctrine Command (ARTDOC).
Just thirteen months after contract award, MASA has delivered a completely customized version of its wargame with automated forces, SWORD, to the Bangladesh ARTDOC, in order to equip its Computerized War-Game Center (CWGC). The simulation has been adapted to reflect specific requirements including the Army’s doctrine, equipment and supplies as well as its operational terrain.
The ARTDOC has chosen to employ SWORD for command post training from Battalion to Division level. The software enables the Army to immerse its training audience in different types of military and civil emergency scenarios. SWORD can simulate and control tens of thousands of soldiers and units.
As MASA’s last User Group meeting in Saumur proved in March, the key to developing world beating training technologies is to cultivate a close and active relationship with your customers. This conduit provides the feedback loop that is vital to continually enhance products and keep them on the leading edge of training technology.
With MASA SWORD now in service in nearly 20 countries, this feedback loop is significant and goes to show why the SWORD constructive training wargame solution continues to be the solution of choice for so many armies and government organizations around the world.
“Customer feedback is so important for us and assists us in designing updates for the product,” explains Enrico Raue, New Markets Development & Sales Manager at MASA. “We always keep the communication channels open through our regional sales managers and field service engineers. It’s part of our culture as a company to listen very closely to our customers.”
At ITEC 2016 and Eurosatory 2016, MASA will be showcasing its latest iteration of SWORD, version 6.5.
This version of SWORD has improvements in the exercise ‘timeline’ application making it possible to make modifications to a created exercise plan in real-time while the simulation exercise is being executed.
