India has always been recognized as a global leader in aerospace, defense, and related capabilities. Last year, the Government of India reinforced its defense priorities, with Honorable Minister of Defense, Shri. Rajnath Singh announcing the Government’s commitment to achieving a $26 billion defense industry by 2025. A well-articulated digital transformation roadmap is integral to this goal. This is why “Digital Transformation of Defence” was selected as the theme for the 10Th edition of DEFEXPO scheduled for February 5th to 8th in Lucknow.

DEFEXPO is a Vibrant Forum for Driving Industry innovation

DEFEXPO is a biennial mega defense exhibition that brings together world leaders, industry disruptors, and strategic stakeholders in defense. The previous chapter witnessed 50+ bilateral meetings, the signing of 40 MoUs, and participation from 700+ exhibitors. The theme was making India an “Emerging Defense Manufacturing Hub.” Taking this idea a step further, the Government is now turning its focus towards digital transformation, and Dassault Systèmes is delighted to be part of this event.

With our rich legacy in Aerospace and Defense industry, this industry is at the core of what we do, and is among our key focus industries at Dassault Systèmes.  In last 3 decades, we have partnered and equipped many global OEMs and Defense organizations with cutting-edge digital technologies to maximize returns from their capability portfolios.

Our 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, is designed to help stakeholders from multiple disciplines collaborate seamlessly and unlock digital continuity. It creates a consistent source of data from connected systems that can be accessed and leveraged across the product lifecycle. As a result, aerospace companies and defense organizations can gain from cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence, advanced analytics, and alternative materials, making their manned/unmanned systems more effective and versatile.

Our technology is used by defense organizations around the world. At DEFEXPO 2020, we will be at booth no. S17, showcasing how the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform not only enables digital continuity but also provides tailored solutions (Industry Solution Experiences) for defense industry with the global best practices built-in, thereby, accelerating the pace of digital transformation of defense sector

Why should you visit our booth at DEFEXPO 2020?

Reimagining aerospace & defense organizations as a “connected enterprise” will be integral to making today’s digital transformation targets a reality. This is why the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform goes beyond digital continuity to introduce the power of connections, transforming how stakeholders ideate, collaborate and operate.

Some of the key industry solutions and demos that Dassault Systèmes will present at the event include:

  • Co-Design to Target – In our experience, over 50% of defense programs fall short of their scheduled delivery date. A common reason for this is later-stage issue discovery that could have been detected during design. Our Industry solution experience, Co-Design to Target, based on our 3DEXPERIENCE platform, allows aerospace OEMs and suppliers to integrate disparate tools, organizations, and processes for an optimized System Digital Mock-up (DMU), avoiding future integration issues.
  • Program Excellence – Program Excellence helps OEMs and suppliers to digitally transform their product strategy, modernizing their program execution approach. Benefits include on-time delivery, reduction in recurring/non-recurring costs, and reusable processes. Program Excellence paves the way for continuous product development, collaborative planning, and smarter know-how capitalization.
  • Ready for Rate – According to analysts, over 30% of errors/waste during production can be attributed to inefficient supply chains and fragmentation between different manufacturing sites. Our Industry solution experience, Ready for rate, based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, enables cross-site digital continuity and real-time access to information. The production of aerospace and defense equipment becomes more flexible, ready for rapid ramp-up without causing waste or errors. As an emerging Defense Manufacturing hub, it is important that our DPSUs and MSMEs are equipped with such technologies to achieve the agility in manufacturing.
  • Build to Operate – With Indian armed forces needing the fleet modernization for all airborne, seaborne and land based systems, there is an increasing demand to deliver the quality products in shorter time frames. This requires faster production and increased manufacturing capacity from aerospace and defense OEMs. Build to Operate, based on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform makes it simpler to monitor, control, and validate every aspect of manufacturing with digital precision, at a global scale.

Powering Innovation in Conjunction with the World’s Aerospace and Defense Leaders

At DEFEXPO, we look forward to discussing how the 3DEXPERIENCE platform could help defense organizations and aerospace OEMs strengthen design capabilities, modernize program execution, enable cross-site continuity, increase manufacturing capacity, improve supplier collaboration, and most importantly enhance end-user experience. Experts from Dassault Systèmes, Patrick FARDEAU, Vice President, Aerospace & Defense Industry and Ravikiran POTHUKUCHI, our Industry Leader for Aerospace & Defense, will be there to guide interactive demos and forge meaningful connections.

At Dassault Systèmes, we already work with some of the world’s aerospace and defense leaders. Airbus defense and space has chosen 3DEXPERIENCE platform as their digital partner to define future of European Aerospace last year. We also partnered with Lockheed Martin to facilitate the company’s digital engineering goals. Lockheed will use the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform as an engineering and manufacturing planning toolset, over a multi-year collaboration period. Similarly, Turkish aerospace selected the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform for the end-to-end development of its new, multirole aircraft. It will allow 20,000+ stakeholders to digitally collaborate, ensuring an intelligent, error-free design process.

These are only some of the instances of how Dassault Systemes has furthered digital transformation in the defense sector over the years. We will be showcasing all interesting customer success stories at DEFEXPO 2020.  To know more about our participation or to schedule a meeting with our experts, register today
