MASA has developed a new version of its SWORD constructive command and staff training system, which was unveiled at the 2016 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) held in Orlando.
The levels of command have been expanded and the system now has a modular architecture. SWORD was previously designed for training at formation (division and brigade) headquarters (HQ) level, but this has now been extended to battalion HQ level, although the core software remains the same. The system is now offered in three main configurations – formation level, battalion level, and public safety – in a « Build your own SWORD » framework with additional options.

November 28 2016, Paris, France: Constructive simulation specialist, MASA, is now offering an Artificial Intelligence (AI) software solution known as Direct AI (DAI). DAI has been developed as an internal research & development (IR&D) project over the past 15 years and forms the backbone of MASA’s highly successful SWORD automated aggregated constructive training product.
AI can be described as a flexible and rational agent that recognises its environment and responds to stimuli accordingly. DAI is an integrated development environment that provides a high-level structured AI modeling language to specify the decision process of this agent. Through DAI users can specify strong adaptive behaviours which can be combined to implement higher level behaviours. Compromised actions make agents able to reach several objectives at the same time and to face unplanned situations.
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.
