Digital Twins for the Military Training by Tonex

Digital Twins for the Military is a 2-day course that focuses on how Digital Twin technology can specifically benefit the Department of Defense.

Participants learn the ins and outs of Digital Twin technology and how it can be adapted for important, money-saving applications in the military.

Analysts agree, Digital Twins technology for the military promises to revolutionize military training, testing, concept development, decision support and more.

While the civil sector has a head start with Digital Twins, they are of increasing interest in military circles.

Military Digital Twins have enormous potential for saving money and improving capability and operational effectiveness.

According to military experts, there are several key ways in which digital engineering and advanced manufacturing are delivering benefits to military supply chains.

For example, with Digital Twins, military supply chain manufacturers can utilize digital scanning technology to gather asset data throughout the lifecycle of a military asset – resulting in up-to-date digital blueprints of the asset.

By having this digital twin, manufacturers can run test scenarios and evaluate the asset before having it enter a physical testing environment. By running tests based off a digital twin model, errors and issues can be detected earlier on in the design and manufacturing process, saving an immense amount of time and budgets from unnecessary testing, modifications, re-manufacturing and rebuilds.

Digital Twin technology can also be a military asset in regards to shorter lead times and cheaper sustainment costs. Through both digital twin and additive manufacturing technologies, the military is now able to more efficiently monitor, repair, and replace systems or parts at much cheaper and faster rates.

By having Digital Twin replicas of military assets that are continuously being updated with real-time performance tracking and monitoring data, the Air Force and Space Force can better detect and even predict when issues will occur and when assets need to be repaired, saving time and money on any surprise sustainment issues.

Additionally, through digital twin technology, the military can now 3D print replacement parts on the spot, based on a digital blueprint of an asset’s part, bypassing the long lead times and high price tags from traditional supply chain manufacturers.

But analysts also warn, the military needs to put security right at the top of their agenda and keep it there with the launching of Digital Twin technology. Fortunately, there are new security approaches which provide high-assurance security, such as Information Based Security Architecture (IBSA), or Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA).
