MACE User’s Group (MUG)
Held Tuesday, April 30th – May 2nd, 2019
Largest Turnout Yet at the Emerald Coast MUG, Fort Walton Beach Florida
Thanks for Joining Us!
Thanks to all who joined us for another successful MACE User’s Group (MUG)! Our community is growing quickly and the MUG is a great opportunity to interact directly with the team behind MACE and all of the other BSI products, such as the newly announced ARMOR (a free add-on to MACE). We continue to hold two MUG’s per year so look forward to seeing you at our next MUG during I/ITSEC this fall in Orlando.
MUG Main Forum with the Growing MACE User Community
During the MUG, continually ran two sessions that included a large presentation room and a dedicated training room where we addressed advanced MACE topics. Having the dedicated training room allowed us to additionally address user’s custom requirements which allowed us to dynamicall tailor the MUG to specific user needs.

The MUG is a great opportunity to bring the user community together to include the development team behind MACE. BSI uses the MUG to demonstrate and train the latest capabilities of MACE, ARMOR and other ongoing innovations; we also use this time to discuss our future road map for our product line.
Highlights from this year’s MUG included the latest improvements to MACE’s:
- Enhanced Integrated Air Defense Systems (IADS) Modeling
- Combat Air Forces (CAF) DMO MP17 compliance efforts
- Mobility Air Forces (MAF) DMO compliance efforts
- Introduction to BSI’s Augmented Reality Mission Observation and Rehearsal (ARMOR) VR/AR system
- Various performance improvements
