Top 10 Defense Manufacturing Consulting/Service Companies - 2020

The year 2020 is being viewed as a turning point for the defense industry. With large budgets on hand, defense and aerospace OEMs are investing significantly in robust technology innovations like smart systems, additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence, and AR/VR. In fact, the defense industry is now emerging as one of the top investors in AI/VR technology for training and simulation. Military departments are increasingly using AR/ VR to build immersive, repetitive, and flexible experiences, especially for flight and combat training, where it can reduce the overall overhead. The gamification technology, on the other hand, is paving the way for effective and low-cost training programs.

On the strategic front, big data and IoT are making a significant impact, bringing a trove of opportunities into the defense sector. The data collected from jets, weapons, vehicles, and soldiers are becoming a source of essential information, leading to the development of more efficient defense systems.

Adjacently, additive manufacturing is changing the defense landscape by bringing more powerful technologies into the field. Although prototyping is the most common use case, it is also being used in repair and maintenance, research and development, in tools to bridge the manufacturing demands.

To assist military organizations in the task of finding accomplished defense manufacturing solution providers and consulting/service companies, we have compiled this issue of Manufacturing Technology Insights. It is elaborately crafted to assist you in fostering productive partnerships and improving performance.
