Safe and Sustainable Aviation

The top two priorities shaping the aviation industry's development processes are safety and sustainability. 90% of aviation professionals surveyed told us simulation is critical to their success. Download the “Safe and Sustainable Aviation” report to learn what else they told us.

Future Aircraft Systems and Urban Air Mobility

Future aircraft will be radically different from today, with new configurations, low carbon propulsion, more autonomy, electronics and connectivity. See how simulation is helping shape the future of air mobility.

Building Tomorrow's Aircraft

Delivering the future of safe and sustainable aviation requires pioneering advances in avionics, software, lightweighting, aerodynamics and propulsion. As urban air mobility becomes a reality, autonomous, electric and 5G-enabled connected flight will be the norm. A complete digital thread from an idea to an airplane’s digital twin will bring optimized operations, maintenance, repair and overhaul into the realm of the possible.

Ansys Advantage: Digital Engineering Takes Flight

Learn how aerospace and defense organizations are applying digital engineering to stay ahead of adversaries and competitors.

Ansys Advantage Issue 1 2023 Banner

Explore digital engineering success stories across the sector — commercial aerospace, defense, and space.

Digital engineering holds enormous potential for efficiency and innovation across all the great initiatives now before A&D organizations.

The aerospace and defense industry was one of the first to embrace computer-aided engineering (CAE), but it has since acted slowly to expand digitalization efforts. Stepping forward into digital transformation will help these companies solve many of their challenges faster and at lower cost, delivering products to market sooner. So, it’s worth asking the question: Why haven’t they taken this step earlier?

This issue of Ansys Advantage seeks to prove the value of embracing digital engineering, as seen through the stories of organizations that have done so already. Within these pages, you can explore some of the ways in which digital engineering is empowering innovation in autonomous systems, spectrum operations, propulsion systems, light weighting and aerodynamics, and more.
