Paris (PRWEB) May 18, 2012
At the ITEC exhibition and conference on booth #F120, MASA Group (MASA), a leading developer of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based Modeling & Simulation (M&S) software for the defense, public safety, emergency management, serious games and games-related markets, is unveiling the latest version of MASA SWORD, the companys automated, aggregated constructive simulation software for efficient training and analysis. SWORD helps users develop and deploy advanced and highly realistic scenarios for the training of decision-makers in command posts and crisis centers, as well as for the analysis of military doctrines and emergency procedures.
Through a number of live demonstrations with GIS, C2/C4ISR systems and other simulations, ITEC visitors will see how SWORD brings unprecedented levels of interoperability. Show attendees will also see how the new version of SWORD establishes a defense-security continuum and emulates civilian-military cooperation, offering defense and public safety organizations and systems integrators a host of new features and functionalities designed to address modern training and analysis requirements within a context of reduced budgets.
MASA SWORD and Systematic SitaWare Integration
At ITEC, Systematic, a leader in interoperable Command & Control (C2) solutions, and MASA are joining forces to demonstrate how situational awareness, C2 tasks, and a constructive simulation can complement each other to provide a C2 Classroom tool. The C2 Classroom is a fully-functional combination of two COTS products: Systematics SitaWare Headquarters software deployed alongside SWORD. The C2 Classroom is mainly aimed at C2 training, course of action analyses, war gaming, and simulation support in concept and doctrine development.
The solution can be further enhanced based on customer requests.
Amper Programas uses SWORD to add AI-empowered Course of Action Analysis, with embedded training
Visitors to the MASA booth will see how Amper Programas, a Spanish defense integrator specializing in COTS-based tactical Command & Control Information Systems (C2IS), is using MASA SWORD to add Course of Action Analysis (and embedded training) to the list of features already provided by its C2 systems and products.
The ne.tacplan tool is a military tactical planning tool for Land Forces, which is part of Amper’s C4ISRne.onLINE command and control products. ne.tacplan helps users develop a complete tactical plan, including mission analysis, initial preparation of the battlefield through meteorological and terrain analysis, course of action development, course of action analysis and the issuing of plans and orders in electronic format.
The course of action analysis is executed using SWORD as the simulation engine, leveraging its unique characteristics and performance. Several courses of action can be fully analyzed and compared.
