AI will drive aerospace sector in the next 15 years

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be the key driver of fast-paced developments in Aerospace sector in the next 15 years, said Dr VK Saraswat, member, NITI Aayog. At the Annual General Meeting and National Conference of the Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI), he said it would play a significant role in cutting down costs, reduction in cycle time of design, optimisation, simulation, prototyping, manufacturing, maintenance and product updates.Disruptive technology AI will be one of the disruptive technologies which will impact efficiency, productivity, speed and innovation in the emerging industries, he added. Dr G Satheesh Reddy, Secretary, Department of Defence R&D and Chairman of the DRDO, said that unmanned vehicles will play a major role in both defence and civilian sector. Therefore, there is an urgent need to gear up in the area. Highlighting the contributions of the DRDO in design and development of state-of-the-art UAVs, he said that the Ministry of Defence is organising a contest, Drone Olympics, during the forthcoming Aero India event in Bengaluru. He said, “Indigenous development of sensors will play a major role and will revolutionise applications like UAVs for commercial and defence applications and will greatly impact our daily lives in future.”Mr VV Rao, Outstanding Scientist and Programme Director, Agni and Chairman, Organising Committee, said: “Aerospace sensor technologies will play a vital role in futuristic unmanned systems. The scenario is changing fast with the emergence of nano technologies and miniaturised embedded systems. Unmanned Systems will revolutionise agriculture, medical, space, defence and environment management.”
