SES’s acclaimed Extended Technical Support Service (ETS) is provided by an internationally recognized team of engineers and physicists, whose research activities have resulted in major contributions to leading scientific organizations. With an active ETS service, you will be entitled to engage this team with unlimited requests, whether for general engineering support or advice on any topic within their considerable realm of expertise, including guidance on how to apply the software to your designs and projects. For most software packages, one year of ETS is included at no additional cost.
You will also benefit from our Additions, Enhancements, Updates Service, including Maintenance and Insurance (AEU-MI) which, following the purchase of any software package, is also provided free of charge for one year. With an active AEU-MI service, you will receive software patches and updates, including new features and improvements.
