MASA Group has delivered its constructive simulation software, SWORD, for the Spanish Army’s National Training Centre as part of a contract.

The contract involves full customisation of the software to meet the requirements of the Spanish Army.

Commanding officers in the military, as well as crisis managers in the emergency preparedness sector, can use SWORD to improve training, analysis, and decision support.

The software offers realistic scenarios and an open simulation platform.

The Spanish Army will simulate combat actions and combat-support actions to improve the training of its command posts from company and battalion up to brigade and division level.

SWORD includes artificial intelligence (AI) engine developed by MASA and can be deployed through distant servers. It can also be adapted into several languages, including English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic.

The Spanish Army aims to use the software in many cases such as command post-training, crisis management and disaster response, logistic command post training and in urban conflicts.

MASA Group CEO Marc de Fritsch said: “MASA is honoured that the Spanish Army has selected SWORD as their constructive simulation of choice for the training of their command posts.

“SWORD will significantly enhance the army’s training capabilities, expanding the possibilities of Spanish and multinational command post training scenarios.”

The National Training Centre selected the software primarily for its overall capabilities, versatility and flexibility.

Following the installation of SWORD, the first exercise with military units is expected to take place at the beginning of June this year.

More than 20 armies and system integrators worldwide, including France, Belgium, Brazil, Bangladesh and New Zealand, are currently using the software.
