The Aerospace and Defence industries are preparing to face technological innovation challenges largely related to the world of advanced data and analytics. These challenges will place greater emphasis on infrastructures to collect, manage and distribute large amounts of data, and on analytical capabilities with AI that can harness and exploit it. This will impose new ways of understanding products and services, quality, planning and process efficiency, with the aim of creating new value levers, reducing costs, increasing productivity and shortening time to market, with greater quality and full compliance with standards. Kineton offers customised software solutions to cover different needs in product and process engineering in the Aerospace and Defence sector, with a strong focus on new technological trends related to data and AI. The multidisciplinary nature of our team and the cross-industry experience gained over the years, provide a diversified and distinctive point of view able to contribute with value to the new challenges for the Aerospace and Defence sector.
Thanks to Kineton’s experience in the world of transport systems, and in particular in the automotive sector, the company can offer on-site consultancy, participation in internal projects through partnerships, development in outsourcing of customer projects also in the Aerospace market.
The transversal skills, which Kineton puts at disposal, are related to:
- Modeling and Simulation for Control Strategies Design (Digital Twin);
- Software Development (Model-Based Design);
- Software Validation (Hardware-In-the-Loop, Rapid Control Prototyping);
- Data Engineering (AI, Machine Learning).
Kineton can also boast vertical skills on issues of the aerospace domain, such as:
- Energy Management Solutions;
- On-Board Data Handling and Subsystem Management Design;
- Advanced Navigation and Sensor Fusion;
- Guidance, Navigation, and Control Design capabilities.
Within the aerospace industry, we include companies that are involved in the design, production, marketing, and maintenance of aircrafts as well as spacecrafts and specific equipment associated with the sector (e.g. launch vehicles, satellites, ground stations).
The Mechatronics area aims to pursue the enabling technologies of Industry 4.0, namely, the Digital Twin, application of Augmented Reality (AR), the IoT in the industrial field. Starting from R&D projects carried out with important companies in the industrial sector, Kineton can seize the opportunity to integrate, with distinctive skills and contributions, the Quality Control technologies developed by external partners in order to propose innovative Advanced Manufacturing solutions (I 4.0).
The company’s vertical skills on issues more specific to the Industry 4.0 domain concern:
- Smart Maintenance Solutions using Augmented Reality (AR);
- Software design for the SCADA system.
Industry 4.0 generally includes companies that deal with the design, production, marketing, and maintenance of embedded systems and monitoring of complex industrial systems (eg biomedical, railway, aeronautical, manufacturing). Kineton is able to provide on-site consultancy and outsourcing development of client projects.
