The digital transformation is well underway for providers within the civil and military aerospace and defense sectors: Many of them digitalize core processes in development and production, in order to bring new, sustainable technologies onto the market quickly, or tap into new business areas such as urban mobility. At the same time, they must establish stable, high-performing supply chains in order to avoid bottlenecks and enable increased rates of production.
New drive technologies based on hydrogen, electrification, and sustainable aviation fuel improve the carbon footprint and enable climate-neutral flight. To ensure such approaches can be brought to the market quickly, flexible and high-performing development processes as well as efficient collaboration are needed within the supply chain. Resources based on sovereign, highly available, and CO2-optimized cloud environments, such as for simulation and digitalized verification, help to ensure cooperation is efficient and secure, while facilitating growth.
