The strategic relationship between MASA Group and Bohemia Interactive will be reinforced this month following the signing of a reseller agreement. This agreement will confirm BISim as the official reseller of MASA SWORD in North America.

With many global military powers already using both SWORD and BISim's Virtual Battlespace 3 (VBS3), the companies identified an opportunity to bring their complementary technologies together. The collaboration will enable MASA to respond to growing requirements for cost-effective simulated training, broaden its international reach and provide a truly comprehensive simulation package for command staff training.

This formal cooperation follows a period of successful collaboration, including the development of Proof of Concept (POC) integration examples for MASA SWORD and BISim's VBS3.

"Together SWORD and VBS3 will provide users with a joint training capability previously unavailable with any other product combination," said Arthur Alexion, co-CEO BISim. "With VBS3 and SWORD users can train from commander through individual entity-level simulation at unprecedented levels of detail."
