The satcom industry is in the middle of a software-defined payload revolution. Service providers are always looking to introduce new competitive services by using virtualized onboard workloads that dynamically update satellites are in orbit. From aggregating sensor data to image processing, satellite software is looking to take advantage of new tech around AI, Big data, security and IoT. According to NSR’s Global Satellite Capacity Supply and Demand report, satcom revenues will reach $26.5 billion by 2029.2

Digital twin technology has been historically linked to NASA and the countless simulations all rocket operations needed to go through in order to find any problems before manufacturing and launching a physical version. In recent years, this technology has been increasingly adopted in other industries as well, where systems have become exceedingly complex and unforeseen edge cases need to be addressed.

Research indicates that three-fourths of IoT organizations are already using digital twins or plan to do so. The global digital twin market is experiencing a 40 per cent cumulative annual growth rate (CAGR), and will reach USD 15.66 billion by 2023.1

Bringing these new designs together in complex systems, never tested before, comes with risks and challenges. One way of addressing these complexities is by employing the same strategy used by NASA and Google self-driving cars – simulation and digital twins.

Attendees will learn how to:

- Model the right level of detail for your system.
- Pre-deploy and safely test in a replica of your production system.
- More easily achieve quality and legislative standards
