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.
Where : Ahoy Convention Center, Theater 1
When : Wednesday, May 17th at 4.00pm
Each year, Military Training International reviews the global simulation and training community, assesses their contributions and promotes companies that allow better individual and group training, lower direct and indirect costs, and the ability to bring joint and international partners together.
MASA Group is very proud to have been recognized as one of the Top Simulation & Training Companies from 2016!
Held in Melbourne from September 26th-29th, the SimTecT 2016 is Asia Pacific’s premier simulation conference for industry, government and academia.
In addition to MASA SWORD being showcased at the exhibition on YTEK’s booth, SWORD capacities will also be highlighted in one of the conferences.
Lieutenant-Colonel Martinez, Director at the JANUS Simulation Center (France Army Tactical Training Centre, which has been using SWORD for years) will deliver a speach on Preparing tomorrow’s Army leaders for demanding operational situations, and the role played by advanced automated simulation in their training: “Preparing tomorrow’s Army Leaders for demanding and wide ranging operational situations within dynamic and streamlined training environments is made possible by a transformative enterprise wide solution application approach and a new breed of fit-for-purpose, cost efficient and interoperable COTS solutions underpinned by advanced Artificial Intelligence based simulation technology“.

On September 20th-23rd, the NATO Modelling & Simulation COE will organize the CAX Forum 2016 in Germany.
Dedicated to the promotion of Modelling & Simulation in support of operational requirements, training and interoperability, this year CAX Forum will focus on technical items and operating procedures related to simulation – based exercises and training support, in order to promote the exchange of information and best practices among the Staffs of NATO and National Simulation/Training Centres.
On Wednesday, Septembre 21st at 11 AM, Hans Ten Bergen, Key Account Manager at MASA Group, will deliver a presentation on Logistic Command Post Training.

Bangladesh became, in early 2015, the third Asia Pacific country to select MASA Group’s world leading wargame solution with automated forces, SWORD. Less than 13 months after the initial contract signature, MASA has delivered a completely customized constructive simulation training solution to fulfil the needs of the Bangladesh Army Training and Doctrine Command (ARTDOC).
Just thirteen months after contract award, MASA has delivered a completely customized version of its wargame with automated forces, SWORD, to the Bangladesh ARTDOC, in order to equip its Computerized War-Game Center (CWGC). The simulation has been adapted to reflect specific requirements including the Army’s doctrine, equipment and supplies as well as its operational terrain.
The ARTDOC has chosen to employ SWORD for command post training from Battalion to Division level. The software enables the Army to immerse its training audience in different types of military and civil emergency scenarios. SWORD can simulate and control tens of thousands of soldiers and units.
MASA would like to thank all the visitors that came to our booth at ITEC: it was a pleasure to exhibit there and see how interested by our solutions everyone was!
As MASA’s last User Group meeting in Saumur proved in March, the key to developing world beating training technologies is to cultivate a close and active relationship with your customers. This conduit provides the feedback loop that is vital to continually enhance products and keep them on the leading edge of training technology.
With MASA SWORD now in service in nearly 20 countries, this feedback loop is significant and goes to show why the SWORD constructive training wargame solution continues to be the solution of choice for so many armies and government organizations around the world.
“Customer feedback is so important for us and assists us in designing updates for the product,” explains Enrico Raue, New Markets Development & Sales Manager at MASA. “We always keep the communication channels open through our regional sales managers and field service engineers. It’s part of our culture as a company to listen very closely to our customers.”
At ITEC 2016 and Eurosatory 2016, MASA will be showcasing its latest iteration of SWORD, version 6.5.
This version of SWORD has improvements in the exercise ‘timeline’ application making it possible to make modifications to a created exercise plan in real-time while the simulation exercise is being executed.
