Certification of innovative aircraft programs is time-consuming and expensive. Using advanced materials, additive-manufactured structures or electrical propulsion systems requires extensive physical testing and simulation to verify whether the aircraft is safe and reliable. Similarly, spacecraft qualification involves extensive testing campaigns to prove that it will withstand the hostile environments encountered during space flight.
A massive amount of data is collected during these aerospace testing programs and needs to be handled properly to secure the certification or qualification processes. Aerospace testing processes can be optimized by implementing a comprehensive digital thread approach for verification management combined with a smart test data and process management approach.
In this webinar, learn how to streamline your aircraft and spacecraft testing with the help of a digital verification management platform that can connect requirements with aerospace testing evidence.
A lot goes into ensuring that aircraft are safe to fly. A flight test program can take years and involves thousands of test data points. Aerospace and defense companies face two key challenges with aircraft testing: Managing the massive amount of data involved in aircraft testing and connecting the results of tests and simulations to certification requirements. Learn how digital tools can help improve traceability and efficiency.
Like aircraft, spacecraft also go through extensive testing that is crucial to safety and mission success. In addition to managing so much spacecraft testing data, companies struggle to make the data searchable and traceable. Creating a centralized data management system can help combat these challenges.
Using a digital platform to manage requirements verification – from defining the verification plan, preparation and execution of the testing and analysis tasks to gathering compliance substantiation – ensures full traceability of the verification process for aircraft and spacecraft. Using the right tools for test data processing, storage, annotation, and sharing amongst teams also helps improve traceability and efficiency.
In this webinar, the benefits of this holistic approach will be illustrated using various aviation and space examples.
