Building on its existing relationship as an Ansys Service Partner, SSCL has entered into an agreement to become an Ansys Channel Partner to support the growing demand for digital mission operations (DMO) and digital mission modelling (DMM) in Canada. 

SSCL is extremely pleased that Ansys has selected us to be their representative to support small and medium businesses in exploiting the power of Digital Mission Engineering (DME).  We are equally pleased to join forces with Wayne Ellis, president of AppSpace Solutions Inc, who has been providing support to the STK/DME user community for the past 17 years.  Wayne will take on the role of Director, Ansys DME Technology Solutions.

Digital Mission Engineering (DME) uses computer-based modelling, simulation, and analysis software to evaluate the mission effectiveness of technology or systems within an operational context. This allows users to analyse operations and outcomes in a realistic environment and reduces the need for physical prototypes. SSCL, as a DME Channel Partner in Canada, will be responsible for the sale and support of Ansys DME software. In addition, due to SSCL’s in-Canada DME capacity, training and consulting services will be available to our Canadian clients.

Andre Dupuis, SSCL’s President and CEO, said: 

“SSCL is very happy to be building on its relationship with Ansys.  We are especially proud to be bringing in Wayne Ellis as our Director, Ansys DME Technology Solutions. Wayne will lead our talented team of engineers to provide the Canadian marketplace with world class digital mission engineering solutions.” 

Wayne Ellis, Director Ansys DME Technology Solutions, added:

"The need for digital mission engineering in Canada is stronger than ever. SSCL, with the support and partnership of Ansys, is well-positioned to assist defence and aerospace stakeholders to optimize and maximize the application of digital technologies to reduce program risk in the development of complex Canadian capabilities."

Peter Aves, Ansys Senior Director DME International Business, expressed:

“I have been very privileged to have worked with Wayne for many years and I am excited about the prospects of this new relationship between SSCL and Ansys. Canadian clients will be very well served!”
