The Future Is Now: Game-Changing Technology Trends for Aerospace & Defense
Brent Baker, VP Aerospace and Defense, PTC and Alex Daly, Director - Federal Aerospace and Defense, PTC
Many people are justifiably reluctant by the prospect of incorporating emerging technologies in the Department of Defense (DoD) and are only speaking about them in the abstract. But to adopt faster than competitors, the industry must have the collective courage to speak about them in the specific. Watch this session recording to hear a detailed discussion on some of the most exciting product development trends and the potential they have on aerospace and defense organizations. These technologies and trends include real-time CAD simulation, digital twins, artificial intelligence (AI) for design and PLM, migration from documents to models, and augmented reality.

Digital Transformation in the DoD: U.S. Navy Case Study
Ian Boulton, Director Platforms and Technology FA&D, PTC | Thomas Murphy, US Navy | Paul Koester, MBPS PAPM, US Navy
The United States Navy is seeking to modernize its current acquisition and logistic support IT infrastructure, and requires a new approach to doing business. This initiative is called Model-Based Product Support (MBPS) and is a system with enterprise and field level capability. The end result is being able to effectively and efficiently acquire, field, and sustain weapon systems' digital twin and enable appropriate predictive analysis and modeling tools that can improve material availability and reliability, increase operational availability, and reduce operation and sustainment cost. Watch this presentation to hear how the U.S. Navy is approaching this challenge.
Driving Value with Digital Transformation for Maintenance and Reliability
Maddy Hawkins, Director, IoT Sales, Aquitas Solutions | Michael Hayes, Director of Development, Aquitas Solutions | David Segal, PTC
Watch this session replay to learn about a comprehensive Connected Maintenance solution, based on the ThingWorx IIoT platform integrated with an EAM/MIS system like Maximo. Connected Maintenance enables real-time data capture, alerting and maintenance action to help organizations become more predictive and efficient in their maintenance operations in the field and in depot.
Smarter Factory: A Path Towards Resiliency
Shankar Nagarajan, CTO and Product Leader, Aerospace, Defense & Manufacturing, DXC Technology
Aerospace, Defense and Manufacturing companies want to streamline their processes and make the transition from linear, document-centric processes to dynamic, digitally-connected processes that maximize the advantages of a digital ecosystem. Better integration from design to manufacturing and from manufacturing to service and repair and supply chain optimization and readiness will allow A&D companies to differentiate from their competition. Smart Factories will be at the core of our clients’ digital manufacturing strategies enabling Digital Thread, Digital Twin, and supply chain transformation projects. Smart Factory will allow companies to reduce costs, launch new programs, increase capacity, streamline processes, ensure timely throughput and delivery, and maximize operational utilization of their manufacturing infrastructure enabling a continuous improvement cycle. Now, more than ever, the need to create efficiencies for smarter operations provides an opportunity to thrive in the "new normal" and become competitive.
