The Defence Academy of the UK officially launched Defence Simulation Centre (DSC), today (Wednesday 24th October).
The DSC will provide a focal point for all modelling and simulation (M&S) across defence, directly supporting the Defence Modelling and Simulation Coherence (DMaSC) approach.
The DSC will become your first port of call for any modelling and simulation query, request or advice. Whether you have simulation involved in a project and are looking for expertise and guidance to get off the ground or you are running simulation exercises that require models and terrain datasets, Defence Simulation Centre can point you in the right direction and send you data.
Mark Lenton-Jinks, Defence Simulation Centre said:
“The Defence Simulation Centre is designed as a one stop shop for meeting the simulation needs for the MOD. In the long term it means we are going to have much more structured facility, not just for Defence but also wider government departments thus enabling enquiries reference modelling and simulation (M&S) to have a single point of contact.”
The DSC acts as concept and assessment vehicle focusing on enabling better, more cost effective and environmentally sustainable enabling capability.
The DSC supports the use of simulation across the defence spectrum whether for experimentation, training, acquisition, concept development, etc.
Chris Evett, Defence and Security Lead, Polystream said:
“Today we are illustrating a cloud in a box; this is a piece of kit that allows you to stream instantly accessing a cloud that is portable. If you were to deploy, you would take the box with you and stream your simulations very quickly, with a lot more resilience. We are leading the way in demo distributed simulation training; always planning for the unknown.”
Processes and benefits are captured at the DSC for the running of a catalogue of resources for the MOD, industry and academia on behalf of (DMaSC).
“Defence will have a coherent framework of M&S enablers, accessed through DSC Front Door that are interoperable, reconfigurable and cost effective”
