Sustainable Space, the keystone to the future!

The 2nd International Conference on Flight Vehicles, Aerothermodynamics and Re-entry Missions Engineering (FAR) is an event organized by the European Space Agency (ESA)  in conjunction with other global space Agencies and institutional partners, including the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft und Raumfahrt (DLR), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the the Centre National d’Études Spatiales (CNES) of France, the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI), the United Kingdom Space Agency (UKSA), the Spanish National Institute of Aerospace Engineering (INTA), the Norwegian Space Agency (NOSA), the Romanian Space Agency (ROSA), and the HyFAR-ARA association (HyFAR-ARA).



Investing into 4.0 technologies to extend existing digital capabilities may look like an extra financial stretch at the first glance, yet, this is mission-critical to anticipate for business recovery, for both manufacturers and suppliers. Stand-alone CAD and CAE designs using empirical and historical safety margins and traditional test-and-learn protocols relying on physical testing will be abandoned for an end-to-end digital thread that seamlessly connects product design, manufacturing, and in-service operations across. This is what we, at ESI, call Virtual Prototyping.

Virtual Prototypes empower engineers to digitally validate a design’s performance in terms of product quality, production capacity utilization, safety, and security, or in terms of operations and maintenance costs. It brings confidence about manufacturability and the most efficient manufacturing process in early development stages. Supplemented with Hybrid Twin technologies, engineers are equipped with the ability to experiment virtually with real data and real physics, simultaneously. This is the extra degree of freedom and early confidence engineers need to design, manufacture, and assemble right the first time - without real tests or prototypes, before cutting a single piece of metal, and with zero downtime during final operations.

Building upon Digitalization with Virtual Prototyping

  • Getting virtual pre-certification right first time
  • Shifting towards virtual manufacturing to achieve sustainability goals with less risk
  • Extending capabilities to optimized fleet usage and operational performance
