MASA Group and Bohemia Interactive Simulations announce strategic partnership

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.

MASA opens new office in Brazil ahead of training for civil emergencies

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.

Conference at ITEC

ITEC 2017 - conf

During ITEC, on Wednesday, May 17th, Newfel Messouci (Software Engineer at MASA Group) will be presenting a 30min conference :

Designing Realistic Behaviours for a Military Training Simulation

Simulation is a one of the main tools for armies’ training; it is used to confront trainees to complex situations that would be expensive and potentially dangerous to do in the real world. In this context the modeling of realistic automated forces becomes essential. This talk will focus on the behavior modeling process, from the analysis of the operational requirements and the military doctrine to the actual implementation and finally the test and validation process. Attendees will learn what are the main guidelines to build a maintainable library of behaviors that are both perceived and measured as realistic. MASA SWORD, a simulation for command post training used by many armies throughout the world will serve as an illustration for this presentation.
