From July 20th to 22nd, MASA will take part in nucl.ai, the largest worldwide conference about Artificial Intelligence applications in interactive media, training & simulations, and digital entertainment.
MASA will particularly be active in the Agent Behavior track, with a conference on « Designing realistic behaviors for a military training simulation » presented by Newfel Messouci, AI developer and behavior designer at MASA.
The latest version of MASA Group’s automated wargame solution for training or decision-support, MASA SWORD, will be unveiled at ITEC 2015. The company’s reputation for providing cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based technology is further boosted by new customers in both the defense and the civil security sector.
With customers in 15 countries around the world, SWORD is rightly recognized as the world’s leading wargame with automated forces. The company has recently taken this capability a step further with the release of SWORD version 6.0. The range of new features included in this latest version is the result of a strong internal Research and Development effort that has been driven by a particularly close relationship with MASA’s growing customer base. SWORD v6 will be showcased for the first time at the ITEC exhibition and conference in Prague from 28-30 April 2015.
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).
The exercise allowed to strengthen the operational capacities of the local authorities in case of an earthquake or a tsunami – Improved cooperation between the public and the private sectors for the distribution of humanitarian help and food relief to the local populations
MASA Group (“MASA”), a leading developer of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based Modeling & Simulation (M&S) software for the defense, emergency preparedness, serious games and game development markets, is participating as a representative company from the Private sector to the Fourth Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction.
