Digital Mission Engineering (Columbia, MD)

November 19

Digital Mission Engineering (DME) has significant potential to improve win rates, speed delivery times, and increase efficiency. Join with other thought leaders and DME technology providers in the aerospace and defense industry for a day of exploring the successes and challenges leading companies are having implementing DME practices. This is a must-attend event for aerospace executives, engineers, operators, and analysts who need to understand the state of the art, as well as drive future technology developments in a quickly evolving market.

WHAT IS DIGITAL MISSION ENGINEERING (DME)?

Digital Mission Engineering is the integration of the mission environment and operational objectives into the digital thread throughout the entire product lifecycle. Simulating model-based systems in a common, consistent, and collaborative physics-based environment creates a true, mission-level, digital twin.

AGENDA

Morning. Current and future state of digital mission engineering (DME)
  • Keynote session. Speaker for each location to be determined.
  • Panel 1: Using Persistent Mission Models to Compress Delivery Cycles. Panelists will explore how DME impacts the program lifecycle, from planning and concept development, through design, to testing by enabling faster project delivery via persistent mission models.
  • Panel 2: Streamlining Operations and Analysis. This panel will explore the impact of DME on the operations and analysis phases of the program lifecycle by improving mission planning, forensic analysis, and anomaly resolution.
Afternoon. Applying digital mission engineering: develop a digital twin of a notional satellite constellation for tracking hypersonic vehicles.
  • Interactive workshop focusing on integrating the mission into the digital thread to better collaborate and accelerate complex aerospace systems. Attendees will gain hands-on experience with industry standard tools to understand the benefit of including mission objectives in their model-based enterprise.
    • Requirements analysis and functional architectures with industry standard MBSE and SysML tools.
    • Mission engineering of orbits, payloads, and hypersonic vehicles using AGI’s Systems Tool Kit (STK)
    • Communications and thermal engineering with ANSYS’ multiphysics simulation tools
    • Vehicle engineering such as power and attitude control with ASI’s STK SOLIS
    • Integrating all of these models and processes with Phoenix Integration’s Model Center and AGI’s Systems Tool Kit (STK)
  • One-on-one. Attendees can also use the afternoon to talk with experts one-on-one and schedule private meetings with AGI and industry partners.
