Defence Modelling and Simulation Coherence

DMaSC provides a defence wide coherent approach to provide better Modelling & Simulation (M&S) capability and reduce costs with less of an environmental impact.

In support of the above, DMaSC aims to deliver:

  • value for money across the enterprise (highest priority)
  • clearly identified modelling and simulation requirements
  • conformance to agreed standards
  • commonality and re-use of data, models and platforms
  • consistent, enduring, accessible, agile and adaptable modelling and simulation solutions


The DMaSC rules, which describe what is meant by DMaSC compliance and therefore help to provide coherence, are available in Part 6 of ‘The Defence Direction and Guidance for Training and Education’ (JSP 822).

Current activities

DMaSC is engaged in a number of activities including:

  • a systems of systems approach to coherent modelling and simulation capability
  • a Defence Simulation Centre (DSC)
  • research and possible industry input to DMaSC via the DMaSC Industry Advisory Group (DIAG)
