A wind of change in the aerospace and defence sectors
Digital transformation is future-proofing aviation, space and defence – no company can ignore the opportunities presented by technological development. The FERCHAU Aviation Group has pooled its IT competencies in a strategic approach and handles customer projects in six business units:
- Apart from automation, Embedded & Testing also includes traditional hardware and software development on integrated platforms and the provision of digitalised test systems.
- Legacy Transformation deals with hardware and software obsolescence through long product lifecycles and the redesign of legacy systems.
- Cyber Security focuses on securing critical IT infrastructures for military and also many other industrial systems.
- Extended Reality includes technologies, such as Virtual (VR), Mixed (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR), among other things for modern training programmes on critical applications.
- Data Analytics – the technology behind big data – focuses on data as a basis for digitalisation and to support decision-making and forecasting.
- Modelling & Simulation addresses growing customer requirements for complex systems, shorter development times, lower costs and higher quality standards.
