November 29, 2017, Orlando, Florida: After four successful years of training command staff through COMBATER, a simulation system powered by MASA SWORD, the Brazilian Army has chosen to renew its software maintenance contract with MASA. The Army has also decided to extend the deployment of licenses chosen to improve its simulation training offering for its officers.
MASA and XVR Simulation (XVR) are ready to collaborate and benefit from each other’s expertise in order to further develop their own products and markets.
Paris, Delft, 27 November 2017 – The strategic relationship between MASA Group (“MASA”), a leading developer of Artificial Intelligence-based simulation software, and XVR Simulation B.V (“XVR”), a global leader in virtual reality training software, will be reinforced this month following the signing of both a partnership and a reseller agreement. These agreements will confirm the partnership between the two companies to develop and sell their products (MASA SWORD & XVR Platform) in their respective domains.
MASA returns to I/ITSEC at Florida’s Orange County Convention Center on 27 November 2017 to demonstrate the latest developments to its SWORD wargaming solution, and the integration of MASA’s updated Direct AI into the system.
27 November 2017, Paris, France: Since first designing SWORD in 2001, an automated simulation training solution for army personnel, from brigade to division level, MASA has taken the system from strength to strength, continuing to develop it in line with customer requests and needs.
We are delighted to share the news : MASA has won this year’s MS&T award for Innovation.

MASA and Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) have entered a product sales and technical cooperation agreement to further develop MASA SWORD for the North American market.
17 May 2017, Paris, France: The strategic relationship between MASA Group, a leading developer of Artificial Intelligence-based simulation software, and Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim), a global developer of simulation and training software, will be reinforced this month following the signing of a reseller agreement. This agreement will confirm BISim as the official reseller of MASA SWORD in North America.
With many global military powers already using both SWORD and BISim’s Virtual Battlespace 3 (VBS3), the companies identified an opportunity to bring their complementary technologies together. The collaboration will enable MASA to respond to growing requirements for cost-effective simulated training, broaden its international reach and provide a truly comprehensive simulation package for command staff training.
The success of MASA’s relationship with Brazil’s Army providing wargame simulations over the last five years has led to MASA opening an in-country office. Now the company is reaching out to civil defence units to help them train for civil emergencies and natural disasters.
Paris, 15 May 2017: After more than five years of successful operations in Brazil, Colombia and Peru, MASA Group has opened a subsidiary company in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, consolidating its position in South America and increasing its customer outreach.
The new company, MASA do Brasil, which is fully operational, will employ local resources to closely support customers in the region, most of all the Brazilian Army, and to further develop business in the defense and public safety markets.
Following last year’s highly successful Operation Blended Warrior (OBW) that took place at the International / Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando, this year’s repeat exercise featured the MASA SWORD constructive simulation solution participation for the first time.
The first event was successfully demonstrated during I/ITSEC 2015 and included 31 industry and government participants that were networked across twenty-two booths on the exhibit floor. In addition to working through connectivity and interoperability issues, OBW 2015 raised awareness regarding standards, after-action review, and the impact of cyber warfare. This year’s event involved 50 industry, military and academic players with 90 different systems integrated over a distributed network.
