Divisions:Defence, Modelling & Decision Support
Simulation Branch is headed by the Director General Simulation. On behalf of Defence, Simulation Branch provides enterprise governance of the Defence Simulation Capability from capability development to capability management; the Branch also governs the development and management of the Defence Synthetic Environment.
Simulation Branch represents Defence in a number of national and international modelling and simulation engagements.
Simulation governance is achieved through the Australian Defence Simulation Office (ADSO) which provides advice and guidance to Defence in the development of simulation systems, policy, standards and application. ADSO is also responsible for coordinating engagement with allies on simulation and supports simulation acquisition for Defence through an established standing offer panel – the Defence Simulation Support Panel (DSSP) and the Synthetic Environment Working Group (SEWG).
