The New Space Frontier
The European Space Agency (ESA) aims to take advantage of digital transformation by extracting greater value from data it has collected over more than 40 years of Earth observation.
Aside from the demands of storing and analyzing vast amounts of data, one of the major challenges facing the space industry today is to develop the capacity to exploit and share all the data it has collected from scientific, observation and telecommunications satellites. Cloud Computing, Big Data, visualization and signal security are the New Space Frontier issues. An example is the significant value of GPS and weather data which is exploited by today’s mass-market applications.
At the same time, the arrival of new players in the space sector is tipping the balance: mergers between manufacturers and miniaturization of satellites are driving change. In our view, companies in the sector need to reduce lead times and costs to remain competitive; production can be optimized through digitalization and it would be no surprise to see the broad application of 3D printing technologies in the sector into the long term.
By using advanced modeling and simulation techniques, our teams help customers develop embedded electronic systems and applications for the processing of scientific data and the set-up of test benches. Our expertise in embedded systems enables us to maintain, upgrade, and re-engineer the software of serial products during their service life.
Our merge of ATAs specialists, methods and tool teams enable the implementation of system development plans in environments that involve many players while conforming to functional, safety and certification requirements. We support all features of systems engineering: architecture, design, integration and validation, testing and certification justification.
AKKA contributes to the design and development phases of a product, and provides high-value-added support in the following fields: studies, calculation, simulation, materials, testing and quality.
