Aligned with recent DoD guideline 5000.97, Ansys will help BAE Systems customers move away from manual processes and toward modernising system design, delivery, and operation through an MBSE approach.

BAE Systems delivers a comprehensive range of products and services for defence, intelligence, and civilian systems, including electronic systems, security solutions, and more. The company is working with Ansys to build efficient simulation processes and data management for system development, testing, evaluation, and sustainment of DoD programmes through its Mission Advantage technology partnership programme. Ansys will provide strategic bid support, architecture engineering, and go-to-market acceleration for sensitive digital engineering applications.
