The aerospace and defense industry has developed over the last 100 years and has transformed how the world travels, communicates, defends and explores.   As we look toward the next 30 years we will see revolutionary technologies be developed by the Aerospace and Defense (A&D) industry that will change how the world works, moves and communicates.  For the industry to advance we must look at both predicting the challenges of the future and also how industry can adapt to these challenges today to enable a more connected universe in the near future.  This discussion will examine what future trends and technologies will change our industry and how we can begin to adapt.  

AIA  partnered with McKinsey & Company and worked with industry leaders and experts to develop a vision of the A&D industry’s impact on society in 2050.   Kevin Dehoff, Senior Partner and Practice Leader, Global Aerospace & Defense, from McKinsey will discuss this study and Dale Tutt, Vice President Aerospace & Defense Industry, from Siemens Industry Software will discuss how today’s technologies can prepare industry to adapt to these challenges. 

We will discuss the following topics:

  • What will the future of A&D look like in 2050?
  • What are CEO priorities today and in the future to prepare for the industry changes?
  • How will we take advantage of future technology?
  • How will the global workforce evolve to the changing A&D industry, future missions, technologies and work environment? 
  • How will Engineering, manufacturing and product support change to adapt to the future trends?
