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

*Resources to include (but not limited to): data, models, terrains, subject matter experts (SMEs), standards, processes, services, software, and reference material.

The DSEn team will brief Industry on its progress to date, future intent and to highlight future commercial opportunities. This will allow Industry to inform our current thinking and will allow us to build a greater understanding of the marketplace.

The DSEn Programme will be briefed as a whole but only the following two projects will be competed at this stage:

Defence Simulation Centre Catalogue (DSCC)

The Catalogue, as a Registry, provides the ability to readily identify suitable and available M&S resources, that also enables/facilitates delivery (where applicable). The Catalogue must be able to connect and interface with similar systems as developed by OGDs and Allies to enable wider sharing of resources.

Synthetic Environment Service (SES)

The SES will generate, manage, maintain, store and provide Synthetic Environment data and 3D models optimised for M&S usage enabling sharing and reuse, with an ability for the service to evolve to cover other types of data specifically for M&S. The system must be able to import and export data in a number of formats as listed in Def-Stan 03-50.

The event will be held face to face at TechUK Offices on 7th September 2022.

Attendance will be limited to 1 representative per organisation on a first come first served basis. Please book now for the session.
