The lifeblood of modern naval architecture: data

Novel market and regulatory pressures mean naval architects must think creatively. Placing data at the heart of design processes offers a route for doing so

Why government and industry must collaborate to accelerate multi-domain integration

Mastery over the five domains of modern warfare – land, air, sea, space and cyber – is a top priority for defence departments. Working with industry leaders already straddling these domains will be vital

How data became the new frontier in modern warfare

Using data to understand battlefields is not a new phenomenon. But strategists are wrestling to gain control as the quantity and accessibility of data in modern warfare proliferates

Multidisciplinary design: How naval architects today are creating the ships of tomorrow

Today’s naval architects need fully integrated digital design systems that allow for collaboration, coordination, and simulation to keep pace with modern ship design.

How simulation saves money and adds value in the ship design process

Maximising efficiency, keeping costs down, hitting ESG goals – naval architects face a growing checklist of requirements. Ticking every box necessitates a revamped approach to ship design that emphasises simulation

Multi-domain integration: buzzword or the basis for a future defence strategy?

The defence industry is gearing up for a new era of integration across different domains of warfare. Translating enthusiastic talk on the topic into action is a major challenge

Why ship designers in a rapidly evolving industry must rethink their approach

The shipbuilding industry is under pressure: environmental targets must be met, new technology incorporated, and prices kept competitive. Integrating disjointed digitalisation efforts could hold the key for designers on the front line.
