New aircraft more environmentally smarter

Digital technology also for the aircraft manufacturing workshop brought a revolutionary experience. Cooperation between Boeing and Dassault Systemes, in the factory has established a global virtual digital monitoring system that can in different countries, different workshop production of all components of the same aircraft in real-time monitoring, reflect the whole production schedule.

This monitoring system is expanded by the automotive industry to the aviation industry. In the past, aircraft manufacturing process is isolated, the lack of a production process, all the components linked together platform, digital technology provides such a collaborative platform.

Charles said that the application of digital technology in aircraft currently solved three problems: industrial efficiency, technology and profitability. Two giants Airbus and Boeing in this area has already begun competing Airbus A350XWB and Boeing wide-body aircraft 787 is digital technology laboratory, and their experience for future aircraft manufacturers provide valuable reference.

Airshow, multi-national companies displaying UAV widespread use outside the military. French media that the reduction in military spending in Western countries the case of civilian UAV market prospects.
