Accelerating Advanced Defense Technology

Ansys simulation solutions speed new technology into service and increase confidence in mission success by predicting real-world performance.

Holding the Edge Through Digital Engineering

When it comes to defense technology, an advantage gained today is far more fleeting than in previous generations. That’s why it’s not enough to get ahead; the real imperative is to stay ahead.

The goal is obvious: dramatically accelerate the delivery of new technology. Defense leaders agree, and many have already called for an end to the era of massive platform programs that span decades. Militaries today are demanding systems that support rapidly evolving technology.

Building those kinds of systems, and maintaining and improving them, will require radical change: digital transformation. Simulation solutions from Ansys are essential to digital transformation because they accelerate innovative leaps, reduce costs, and mitigate risks — all of which enable organizations to create better products faster.

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.
