Digital engineering is necessary, but not enough. A persistent mission model is essential to recognizing the full value of the digital engineering enterprise. And a physics-based, multi-domain software environment is essential for building true digital twins at both the platform and the mission level.
Join AGI and our partners for a virtual forum that will explore real-world experiences implementing digital engineering and extending it to the mission level — from design and testing to operations and analysis.
Tuesday, December 1
