Leonardo Labs Embraces Digitally Driven Future

Enabling Breakthrough Technologies

Reducing Computational Time with Ansys

An international network of research and development laboratories, Leonardo Labs is striking a balance between environmental responsibility and the technological performance of its components and systems.  

Digitalization plays a pivotal role, integrating cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and digital twins into the design and development of aircraft. Collaborating with Ansys, Leonardo Labs can perform high-fidelity simulations that leverage the computational power of its supercomputer, DaVinci-1, with greater accuracy and in less time. 

“We are considering bringing artificial intelligence into a very specific application of a digital twin as part of our understanding of the benefits of AI in our simulation environment. This is a new project, and we want to work with Ansys, especially on our research topics.”
