• The state of A&D digitalization

• Bridging the gap between corporate leadership & technology teams

• Understanding data within your organization

• Transparency in data sharing to relieve supply chain disruptions

• Accelerating certification of emerging technology

• The role of technology in workforce development

• Developing operations without the constraints of legacy systems

• Smart manufacturing: Building efficiency in factory operations

• Operators & OEMs: Driving effective product improvement

• The emerging technology landscape

Moving Forward

“It was a great time meeting with customers, friends and industry colleagues, discussing future state and transformation strategies.”

After the success of the Aerospace Incubator IT forum in 2021, and the transition to Aerospace IT in 2022, Aviation Week is excited to bring you the next evolution, the Digital Transformation Summit.

As the Aerospace & Defense sector moves through Industry 4.0, the whole industry must take the right steps and move together to progress safely and efficiently to a digital operating model. Aviation Week Network’s Digital Transformation Summit brings together OEMs, suppliers and operators from right across the value stream from engineering and supply chain, operations and maintenance, who are looking to streamline their digital operation and establish connected IT infrastructure. This summit is designed to help you innovate and drive forward connectivity in the sector

Opening Presentation: The State of A&D Digitalization

A case study from a key OEM or Tier 1 supplier: Where is the Aerospace & Defense industry in its digital transformation journey? What progress has been made and what are the biggest barriers to increased adoption of digital technologies? Comparing A&D to other industries, why are we so far behind?

Panel Discussion: Understanding Data within your Organization

With so many companies data rich but information poor, how your business utilizes data is a key differentiator between you and your competitors. Beyond just capturing, data must be understood. Is it relevant? Complete? Single source? Only once these factors are understood, can you harness data to meet your business problems. This session will unpack the key steps to integrate efficient data use into your operation.

Panel Discussion:

Bridging the Gap between Corporate Leadership & Technology Teams

Between these two crucial parts of aerospace, defense and commercial aviation businesses there are often two different languages being spoken. Companies need to bridge the gap so that we can validate technologies and benefit from the positive changes in efficiency that technology can bring. It is crucial that companies can develop base infrastructure to be able to meet emerging technologies head on. How can organizations come together to get ahead?

Panel Discussion: Transparency in Data Sharing & Relieving Supply Chain Disruptions

Enabling data sharing down the supply chain is crucial to building transparency and better predicting supply chain issues. How can this be achieved efficiently between partners while protecting critical information? How can we bridge the growing divide between OEM & Tier 1 capabilities and smaller organizations? What are the specific barriers of entry to industry 4.0 for lower tier organizations and how can they be overcome to ensure the digital thread is far reaching?

Collaborative Digital Threads: Accelerating Certification of Emerging Tech

Abstract: Digital Threads and Twins have transformed how aircraft are built, now it’s time to allow them to accelerate the system that certifies them for safe flight. Commercial technologies like eVTOL, digital twins, and hydrogen are fueling a revolution in aerospace. Cutting edge capabilities are challenging assumptions and speeding up decision cycles for regulators, but government certification systems have struggled to keep up. The FAA, U.S. Air Force and NASA have demonstrated willingness to innovate, but rigid certification architectures are dragging on the industry. The certification system is primed for a digital transformation. Robust digital bridges between requirements, design, build, testing, and most importantly, certification will unlock software-enable, responsive architectures.

Dr. Will Roper, Founder & CEO, Istari
