Ansys says its simulation solutions support digital transformation within the aerospace and defence (A&D) industry by equipping civilian and military sectors to face unprecedented challenges with speed, agility, and predictive accuracy.
At the upcoming Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) from July 18-22, Ansys will highlight how simulation enables innovative, cost-efficient, and smarter solutions.
Alongside nearly 1,500 exhibitors at the Farnborough Airshow, Ansys will illuminate how its comprehensive simulation portfolio propels the A&D industry forward in both fundamental and emerging areas of engineering, while reducing physical prototyping costs, design errors, and risk. Experts will demonstrate the benefits of simulation through safe and sustainable aviation, strategic defence capabilities, the future of passenger travel, next-generation space exploration, and workforce advancement with expert training and onboarding initiatives.
With physics-based software equipped for fluids, electronics, digital mission engineering, and more, A&D companies throughout the world use Ansys to engineer better, faster, and cleaner solutions from developing hypersonic defence technology and electromagnetic spectrum resilience to energy-efficient hydrogen propulsion systems.
“At Electroflight, Ansys’ simulation enabled our engineers to optimise a 425kg battery pack to operate with 90% energy efficiency through structural analyses, thermal management, and best-choice materials selection,” said Douglas Campbell, technical director at Electroflight. “By integrating Ansys' multiphysics simulation solutions in this way, we continue to develop efficient and sustainable aircraft by balancing energy consumption, propulsion, and lift."
Ansys’ materials properties database and selection tools support efficiency by enabling the selection of sustainable materials from the start of design. In addition to physics-based simulation solutions, Ansys supports aviation cybersecurity through reliable embedded control software that helps ensure safe and secure aircraft systems and decreases the risk of cyberattacks.
“Ansys is propelling digital transformation across the A&D industry by providing top-tier solutions that include simulation tools, advanced solvers, and purpose-built simulation process and data management that address a vast range of needs, including embedded software and digital mission engineering applications,” said Walt Hearn, vice-president of global sales and customer excellence at Ansys. “We are honoured to participate in the Farnborough International Airshow to exhibit Ansys’ world-class solutions so that more organisations can benefit from our leading technologies.”
