Aerospace systems are becoming increasingly complex and interconnected, while still being expected to meet stringent performance, reliability, and safety requirements. Examples include commercial aircraft, UAVs & transportation systems.
Technology is central to the future of the air transport industry, combining cloud computing, big data, analytics, smart machines, robots, simulation and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Technology is shaping how wars are fought and borders are protected. The technology in defense does not translate only for confrontation alone, but represents an essential feature of defense in our current era.
Security technologies are used to implement fundamental security controls. These controls include restriction of physical access, environmental monitoring, authentication of identity, verifying access authorization, and assessing affiliation.
Space systems provide intelligence and surveillance that is critical for the national defense. Typically involve of high levels of subsystem interaction, include low design, low performance , and require high reliability.
Aircraft that are operated remotely and that have a high degree of autonomy. UAVs are used in a wide variety of applications that include aerial photography, search and rescue, law enforcement, military reconnaissance, and visual inspection of infrastructure.
