The Airworthiness Defense Industry Advisory Group (ADIAG) Keystone Panel Objective:

2022 Theme: Pacing Impact of Digital Acquisition Transformation toward Airworthiness Certification (AWC) Processes and Tools

Over the past three years, DoD and the Aerospace Defense Industry has increased emphasis on working toward a full-lifecycle model-based engineering (MBE) mindset, otherwise known as Digital Acquisition. MBE is at the core to create this cross-functional digital enterprise for utilization throughout a weapon system’s lifecycle and ultimately achieve Digital Acquisition cost and schedule benefits. Use of model predictions to support AWC compliance determination depends on model maturation and prediction accuracy in comparison to actual platform performance data.

As a part of this DoD Defense Acquisition System transformation, the US military services are posturing to employ an integrated digital environment through which an enterprise team may expeditiously communicate and collaborate on various program interest across the various functional disciplines (engineering, contracting, sustainment, etc.). This transformation goes beyond systems engineering yet has it as the root function guiding the beneficial change to the DoD procurement process. The ADIAG, focused on airworthiness and military flight release, continues to work through implication and program benefits generated by employing a digital acquisition mindset.

AWC criterion, standards, and methods of compliance serve as prominent metrics to provide confidence in weapon system design and ultimately mission suitability. While the current document-centric airworthiness artifacts process provides confidence in a weapon system’s Operational Safety, Suitability and Effectiveness, DoD and industry personnel see the cost and time efficiencies offered through collaborative model-based engineering.

The ADIAG Keystone panel will delve into various facets of this digital acquisition transformation and implications for airworthiness processes and tools. It should prove a fruitful exchange for both the panel members and audience.
