A closer look: Next generation electrical system platform development

Reading time: 25 minutes

Recent innovations in commercial and defense aircraft have driven vast increases in the quantity and complexity of electrical systems within those platforms. Because of this the design and implementation of these systems are a significant factor in the overall program risk that has to be managed. This paper discusses approaches to improve the electrical platform development process to reduce risk and reach program goals.

A focus on platform electrification and digitalization

The aerospace and defense industry faces competitive margin pressures at the platform level and throughout the supply chain. The industry is constantly looking for ways to control costs and improve collaboration. The ongoing demand for increased platform performance, coupled with the trend toward implementing more capabilities using electrical systems, has made the development of E/E systems in programs a high-risk endeavor. In this white paper learn how a development environment employing a complete digital twin of the platform electrical system reduces program risk.
