Note: This is an in-person event only and will be limited to two delegates per supplier.

The SES project within the Ministry of Defence (MOD) is hosting an industry day where suppliers will have the opportunity to hear the proposed SES, its scope and high-level requirements. The primary aim of this event is to gain an understanding of industry’s suggested approaches to this procurement. This event follows on from an early market engagement event held in October 2022.

About SES

The Modelling & Simulation ecosystem will provide Defence wide access to common Modelling & Simulation (M&S) resources, across all its applications, through a Defence Simulation Centre (DSC) to support coherence and enable reuse, interoperability, and Value for Money across the Defence Enterprise. 

As part of the M&S ecosystem, the SES will provide, manage, and maintain, SE (geospatial) data and 3D models optimised for M&S usage, promoting interoperability and reuse, with a potential for the service to evolve to cover other types of SE data specifically for M&S in the future (e.g., weather and hydrographic data).

During the event suppliers will be briefed by the programme and senior management team and find out more about the SES capability and commercial construct.
