Aerospace and Defense

The defense and aerospace industries have faced turbulence.
It may look like they’re being pulled in opposite directions – commercial aviation and aerospace took a heavy hit from the pandemic, while security threats across the globe have seen defense solutions in high demand.

But a closer look reveals a more nuanced picture, with a range of shared challenges – and a wealth of opportunities for industry players that are prepared for change.

Accelerating design and development

Aerospace and defense industries both face a pressing need to accelerate design and development cycles to meet growing demand. Annual air passenger numbers are forecast to reach 8.2 billion in 2037 (double the 2017 figure) at the same time as security tensions across the globe are generating demand for defense solutions.
The advantage will belong to companies that can speed up their processes in requirement engineering, mechanical and aerospace engineering, modeling and testing, as well as providing quality certification and documentation.

Advanced manufacturing technologies

New developments in manufacturing hold great promise for aerospace and defense companies and suppliers. Advancements in robotics and production-line automation will reduce human errors and increase manufacturing yields. This means companies that fall behind the competition in implementing these technologies will struggle – but that doesn’t mean this can be rushed.

Resilient supply chains

The implementation of technologies like advanced robotics and production-line automation is a huge transformation. Any change of this scale must be handled with care, ideally as part of a wider transformation of supply chains into resilient, boundaryless value chains that can withstand shocks and turbulence.
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to building strong value chains. Finding the right approach for your organization means looking at strategies like onshoring and vertical integration alongside technologies and tools from big data analytics to robotic process automation. Akkodis’ industry-leading tech talent has the technology skills and the deep industry knowledge to guide companies on this journey, whatever their place in the value chain.

Years of domain experience
Akkodis works with the world’s top defense organizations to deliver innovative solutions and power their journey to the digital economy.

Advancements in aeronautics

Automated production lines. IoT-driven predictive maintenance. Autonomous flight systems. These are just some of the technologies promising to transform the world of aeronautics – but they will need careful implementation to leverage effectively.

The deep industry knowledge of Akkodis’ tech talent can help aeronautics companies and suppliers implement supply chain/warehouse transformations and adopt cutting-edge tech without operational disruption.

Air defense

Electronic warfare, cybersecurity, and software engineering are now key to establishing air superiority in conflict situations. As nation states ready new generations of manned and unmanned military combat, surveillance, and logistics aircraft featuring cutting-edge technologies, tech know-how is becoming more important than ever before to national air forces and their suppliers.

From the conceptual design and mechanical engineering of aircraft to the development of control software for onboard and ground systems, our tech talent has the expertise you need.

Naval defense

Naval defense companies see the importance of AI in their industry, which is why they’ve been hiring AI specialists in growing numbers. Positions in the sector accounted for 18.5% of all advertised AI jobs in Europe in Q1 2022 – up from 12.5% a year earlier. Akkodis offers naval defense companies a way to access best-in-class AI expertise as and when they need it.

But it’s not just AI. Our tech and engineering talent also has the capabilities and knowledge to guide naval defense companies as they transform supply chains and manufacturing processes. We can also work with companies and suppliers to design and develop the next generation of technology-enabled naval craft, including engineering, modelling, and development of onboard and integrated software.
