Airbus to use AI to Design Flight Control Software
Aviation Today, June 2019
ANSYS is partnering with Airbus Defense and Space to develop a new artificial intelligence (AI) design tool that can be used to create the embedded flight control software for Europe's Future Combat Air System (FCAS). According to Aviation Today, FCAS is a next-generation air combat development program involving France, Germany and Spain to develop a system of fully automated remote air platforms and sixth-generation fighters that will replace their current generation of Eurofighter and Rafale jets. The partnership between Airbus and ANSYS will engineer an advanced ANSYS SCADE tool that links traditional model-based software development with new AI-based development flow.
