New innovations are underway in the aerospace and defense sector that will revolutionize the way we live and travel. Central to this are new disruptive digital technologies. The industry must be prepared to deliver these capabilities in a timely, cost-effective and sustainable manner, and the digital factory will be at the heart of this.
It is an exciting time for the aerospace and defense (A&D) sector as several key innovations and technologies look to disrupt the industry as we know it.
Emerging technologies that have been on the sector's agenda for many years, and once belonged in the realm of science fiction, are now becoming a reality. This includes the likes of artificial intelligence, automation, simulation, big data, Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality, additive manufacturing, the cloud, and horizontal/vertical software integration. All of these are either being introduced into existing aerospace and defense programs or are in themselves facilitating the development of new capabilities that will change the way the A&D industry moves into the future.
This white paper examines these factors and what it takes to transform current aerospace and defense manufacturing operations into future-proof factories.
