Aerospace & Defence

The aerospace and defence (A&D) industry has been at the leading edge of the development and adoption of simulation technology since the introduction of computerised tools. The reason is simple: It works in a high-reward/high-risk design space, in which the cost of failure is too high. An engineering success like the Space Shuttle’s first manned flight would have been impossible without the extensive use of reliable and accurate computer simulations that guaranteed all systems and components were working correctly.


Disruptive technologies enabled by digitalisation are transforming the aerospace & defence industries, creating new business models and empowering new market entrants. Are you ready for innovation through simulation & digitalisation?

The pace of innovation is so fast that it is necessary to remove the bottleneck of traditional approaches that rely heavily on physical testing and incremental technology demonstrators. It is simply too expensive, time-consuming and in many cases impossible to continue with traditional approaches. So, how are companies overcoming these barriers?

Download this white paper from Ansys to learn more about how aerospace and defence companies are embracing simulation technology to reduce development time and overall product cost, accelerate time to market and improve overall product quality.
