The need for advanced civil and defence systems has been brought into sharp focus. In civil, the drive for zero climate impact is driving development of advanced propulsion, autonomous systems, and urban air mobility. In defence, geopolitical uncertainty has highlighted the necessity for Next-Generation physical and digital systems.

The MathWorks Aerospace & Defence forum will bring experts on different key technology areas to discuss how we can accelerate the development of next-generation systems. Register today to join the forum and explore how models and data can help us respond to these challenges.


Block #1: From “Systems of Systems” architectures to simulation models

  • Define/describe complex system architectures
  • Using simulation and analysis to inform system design
  • Building executable simulations from a library of shared assets
  • Connecting systems architectures with software/firmware implementation

Block #2: Simulating complex dynamic system models

  • How complex is your model? Learn to profile & compare models.
  • How can you scale your simulation? Learn solver & co-simulation strategies.
  • How credible is your model? Learn to trade speed & accuracy for real-time simulation.

Block #3: Certification compliance through verification & validation            

  • Building compliance using Model-Based Design techniques.
  • Applying verification & validation techniques for both hardware & software.
  • How to approach certification throughout a program lifecycle.
