Warfighters must remain ahead of the threat across all domains of operation: land, sea, air and space.

Engineering teams are challenged to increase asset operational availability to meet increasing mission capable rate targets and accelerate modernization to deliver more advanced capability to warfighters faster. And leaders must be cost-informed across the entire asset lifecycle while simultaneously addressing a growing personnel skills gap.

Over 90% of aerospace and defense executives intend to digitally transform to meet these challenges, yet only 10% have made impactful progress. Closing this gap represents a significant — and untapped — competitive advantage for warfighters. The faster it can be closed, the greater the advantage becomes.

Physics-based simulation accelerates the impact of digital transformation.

Quantified benefits include:

Deployable across the acquisition process — from pre-systems acquisition to systems acquisition to sustainment — Ansys delivers accurate, validated and proven simulations within an open and collaborative simulation environment, enabling workforces to increase the probability of first-time success, from design to deployment.
