Digital Engineering is the Future of the Space Enterprise

The next era of space innovation will require systems and operators be faster, smarter and more connected to meet coming challenges. This will require a massive paradigm shift toward digital engineering principles and technologies.

The “digital twin” concept would enable operators to test, analyze and implement updates and upgrades to space assets much more efficiently without having to touch the hardware.

Going InDEPTH Into Digital Engineering

Engineers at Aerospace launched a digital engineering test bed, known as Integrated Digital Engineering Prototype Testbed Hub (InDEPTH) two years ago, allowing Aerospace to develop a deep understanding of the capabilities and methodologies for implementing this digital-first approach.
