Affordability by Design for Aerospace and Defense Systems

Affordability is important. But maximizing resources is challenging when every program comes with its own design criteria that limit program managers to using fixed-function, proprietary resources that are difficult to reuse. In this white paper, we will cover the factors and design recommendations that drive greater affordability into aerospace and defense platforms.

  • Creating and developing standardized software products that can be reused
  • Achieving long-term profitability by consolidating different platforms
  • Using technologies with high technology readiness levels (TRLs)
