The Digital Transformation Imperative for the Aerospace and Defense Industries

The aerospace and defense industries have long operated on the cutting edge to develop and deliver the most advanced capabilities to all domains – land, sea, air, space, and cyber. However, to keep pace with the rapid changes in technology, companies must embrace digital transformation to create more flexible processes, update legacy programs, and build a workforce that is empowered to innovate at scale. Simulation is essential to a successful digital transformation because it accelerates innovative leaps, reduces costs, and mitigate risks — all of which enable organization to create better products faster. ​

Here are just a few of the topics we're showing innovative simulations for:

  • Efficient & Advanced Propulsion Systems
  • Lower Weight & Less Drag
  • Safety & Security
  • Future of Passenger Travel
  • Hypersonics

Creating a Safe and Sustainable Future for Aviation

As aviation OEMs and suppliers pursue innovation in safe, efficient, and clean flight, they will need reliable ways to explore the possibilities and tell good ideas from bad. From propulsion to passenger safety, simulation enables you to experiment with radical new designs or discover ways that small changes can produce dramatic improvements. By throwing open all the doors to invention, simulation reduces costs across the entire product life cycle and accelerates the design and development process.

Staying Ahead of the Threat

Competitive advantage in war fighting depends on modernizing the production of defense capabilities, which is only possible through digital transformation. The intelligent, synchronized movements of forces require spectrum resilience, and hypersonic weapons demand novel strategic deterrence methods. To stay ahead of adversaries — in these domains and others —capabilities must be delivered faster. Simulation speeds new technology into service and can increase confidence in mission success by predicting real-world performance.

Designing the Next Generation of Space Missions

Increased commercial activity, featuring reusable launch vehicles and mass-produced small satellites, is increasing risks for all assets operating in low-Earth orbit. Simulation enables you to plan orbits and predict conjunctions that will maximize a satellites lifespan and keep it safe. ​

Farther from Earth, advancements in research and exploration will enable us to observe and explore the outermost regions of space. Simulation is essential to planning remote missions in the complex environments of space and designing the systems that can achieve them.​

Navigating Future Flight

Advancements in air mobility, enabled by autonomous systems and electrification, are transforming the way we think of short-distance flight. Simulation is essential to designing these new technologies and coordinating the vehicles that rely on them.

Meanwhile, the promises of supersonic and hypersonic transportation are challenging previous notions of safety in commercial travel.

Inspiring Workforces

Aerospace and defense industry leaders must evaluate and deploy cutting-edge tools and processes across engineering teams to compete for recruits and retain and inspire existing employees. This requires learning platforms that new hires can use to rapidly onboard and that existing employees can use to develop their expertise.
