Aerospace & Aviation, AKKA on both sides of the mirror

According to IATA, air traffic is expected to double over the next two decades, with some 7.2 billion travelers flying by 2035.

For the aerospace sector in this kind of environment, innovation is crucial, and the margin for error non-existent. Manufacturers have full order books, and the aircraft they produce must be increasingly safe, electric, lightweight, ecological, economical, maintainable and connected. The use of 3D design models that can be shared in real-time is now essential for integrating and interconnecting the various innovations the market now requires. In AKKA’s view, digitized processes are now pivotal for ensuring supply chain reliability, while the shift towards digitized navigation, maintenance and other documentation makes it possible to analyze the vast amounts of data exchanged between aeronautical systems.

We also anticipate that infrastructures will need to adapt to accommodate traffic growth: wider runways, terminals with improved gate and baggage-handling systems ensuring greater productivity. We also expect that autonomous vehicles will be used to inspect planes or transport passengers to their planes some time in the near future. Traffic control and flight plan management systems will also have to use cutting-edge technology which will be internationally standardized and fully capable of safely integrating future innovations. Innovation will also continue apace on-board as airlines look to match the expectations of premium and repeat customers by improving and adding to their connectivity and other services.
