November 24 2016, Paris, France: Ahead of I/ITSEC 2016, MASA Group is announcing that it is growing the offering of its flagship product, SWORD. In a year where MASA both celebrates its 20th anniversary and welcomes a new CEO, the company has introduced a number of modular options to SWORD as well as significant technological improvements that provide tailored packages to address a greater range of customer requirements and budgets.
Under the direction of the new CEO, David Chouraqui, MASA has implemented a new global strategy to broaden the scope and operation of SWORD, MASA’s constructive simulation for command post training. Until now, SWORD was designed for use at divisional and brigade levels, but this has now been extended so that battalion level command posts can also train using SWORDS’ intuitive and cutting edge technology.
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.
